Notable attendees included Congresswoman Frederica Wilson and Dr. Robert Redfield, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with other federal, state, local officials and representatives of community-based organizations, and the private sector. This round table afforded the opportunity to share best practices, address challenges, make recommendations and implement the initiative. At the end of the session, Dr. Redfield commented that this is time to be “disruptively creative.”

Participants were invited to provide their feedback about:
• Successes that can be viewed as best practices
• Challenges addressing HIV/AIDS to elevate to the CDC’s attention
• Recommendations for CDC/HHS related to implementing the “Ending the HIV Epidemic” initiative, including thoughts about how funds from this initiative can best be spent in our community.

HHS MeetingResources from the CDC will be distributed for planning, the development of strategic plans and the refinement of community needs to further local ownership of the development processes, the consideration of broader environmental or systems factors, the integration and coordination of program initiatives between different stakeholders such as government and private sector partners.
