WHAT IS THE INTERNATIONAL AIDS CONFERENCE 2016?
The International AIDS Conference is the premier gathering for those working in the field of HIV, as well as policy makers, persons living with HIV and other individuals committed to ending the pandemic. It is a chance to assess where we are, evaluate recent scientific developments and lessons learnt, and collectively chart a course forward.
The AIDS 2016 programme will present new scientific knowledge and offer many opportunities for structured dialogue on the major issues facing the global response to HIV. A variety of session types – from abstract-driven presentations to symposia, bridging and plenary sessions – will meet the needs of various participants. Other related activities, including the Global Village, satellite symposia, the Exhibition and affiliated independent events, will contribute to an exceptional opportunity for professional development and networking.
HISTORY OF THE INTERNATIONAL AIDS CONFERENCE
The International AIDS Conference is the largest conference on any global health or development issues in the world. First convened during the peak of the epidemic in 1985, it continues of to provide a unique forum for the intersection of science, advocacy, and human rights. Leaving behind lasting legacies in each host country.
Just as the 2000 International AIDS Conference in Durban served as a catalyst for global treatment advocacy and access, the return of the conference to Durban this year will be a defining moment to establish a clear path toward guaranteeing that no one is left behind in the AIDS response.
