Ninety-eight participants from 18 countries met to share tools and experiences and to disseminate promising approaches in nutrition assessment, counseling, and support (NACS) programming. NACS is the primary model supported by the United States President's Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) for integrating nutrition services into clinical HIV care and treatment services.
