BARCELONA, Spain - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will host two news briefings Monday, July 8 at the XIV International AIDS Conference in Barcelona, where more than 15,000 AIDS researchers, public health officials, and community leaders will gather July 7 to 12 to discuss the global HIV/AIDS pandemic.

CDC will also release new U.S. HIV/AIDS statistics at a press briefing of the American Medical Association, scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 7. The presentation will be given by Ronald Valdiserri, M.D., M.P.H., Deputy Director of CDC's HIV, STD and TB programs, at 9:30 a.m., and will highlight new HIV data for 25 U.S. states that provide important insight into trends in HIV infection. He will also provide an update on AIDS cases in the United States.

Emphasizing the need for renewed HIV prevention efforts in the United States, the CDC press program will examine factors that appear to be contributing to continuing high HIV infection rates among gay and bisexual men. In addition, CDC will release new estimates on the level of mother-to-child infections in the United States, new research on promising technologies that could improve HIV disease management in Africa, and new study findings on the emerging HIV epidemics in China and Russia.
