International AIDS Conference 2012- Washington DC July 22- 27 2012

Posted on July 22, 2012

 

The International AIDS Conference was a 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 was a chance to assess where we are, evaluate recent scientific developments and lessons learnt, and collectively chart a course forward.

 

With the theme, “Turning the Tide Together”,  the conference will reflect on a unique moment in time, emphasizing that the HIV epidemic has reached a defining moment. By acting decisively on recent scientific advances in HIV treatment and biomedical prevention, the momentum for a cure, and the continuing evidence of the ability to scale-up key interventions in the most-needed settings, we now have the potential to end the HIV epidemic.
