Crowd at 2023 Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit and screen that reads "Sex is Natural, Sex is Fun".

The agenda for the 2023 Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada, in April promised a gathering that would "focus on consensual sex in all of its iterations." The Well Project community advisory board chair Marissa Gonzalez was in attendance at the summit; as you will learn from her session summaries, the event did not disappoint!

This was the first in-person gathering for both conferences since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and members of The Well Project's community were on hand. Read on for multiple authors' perspectives on these two fascinating – and distinct – research meetings.

At some point, the refusal to change the language starts to feel more like disrespect and less like old habits – which is one of the excuses I heard for the behavior. I do believe language is behavior, not just a tool for communication. The science community needs to do better.

Ciarra "Ci Ci" Covin and Lealah Pollock, M.D.

Physician Lealah Pollock, M.D., and advocate Ciarra "Ci Ci" Covin explain how recent changes to U.S. perinatal HIV guidelines reveal an important shift in how we fundamentally approach the clinician-patient relationship with pregnant and infant-feeding people who are living with HIV.

Just as nature is conquerable, so too are women also oppressed, creating social structures and expectations where women are more dependent on environment. Yet, that environment they need is compromised and destroyed.

Ciarra Covin and Ana Puga, MD.

Overall, the International Workshop on HIV & Women 2023 was a fantastic opportunity to meet so many other advocates and stakeholders from across the world whose work I have only had a chance to admire from online.
