21 Years of Being Your Internet HIV/AIDS Oral Healthcare Resource


The 2019 OSAP Annual Conference is the premier infection control and patient safety education and networking event in dentistry. This action-packed conference will deliver the latest updates on evolving guidance and emerging infection prevention and safety issues. You can customize your experience at OSAP 2019 through multiple topic tracks.

The World Workshop on Oral Health and Disease in AIDS have been held over the last 30 years and have proved to be invaluable in that they enable clinicians and scientists from more than 30 countries working in the field to provide excellent opportunity to meet experts, exchange ideas and information, strengthen and expand the academic collaboration on an interpersonal level.

April 18 is National Transgender HIV Testing Day (NTHTD), an observance designed to recognize the importance of routine HIV testing, status awareness and continued focus on HIV prevention and treatment efforts among transgender people. The observance is organized by the Center of Excellence for Transgender Health.


In the United States, it is estimated that around 1.4 million adults identify as transgender. Transgender women are at high risk of having HIV and of contracting HIV. Transgender women of color, especially black/African American and Hispanic/Latina women, experience disproportionately high rates of HIV. There is a gap in research on HIV and transgender men; few studies have gathered HIV prevalence data for this population.
