IAVI is proud to be participating in AIDS 2020 Virtual, the world’s largest virtual conference on HIV, hosted by the International AIDS Society (IAS).
IAVI is proud to be participating in AIDS 2020 Virtual, the world’s largest virtual conference on HIV, hosted by the International AIDS Society (IAS). We join in celebrating the resilience of communities, scientists, advocates, and all who are committed to a world without AIDS or TB — the leading killer of people with HIV.
That the conference format has been adapted for COVID-19 social distancing guidelines is yet another example of how the HIV community perseveres in trying times. In this virtual environment, IAVI aims to highlight progress toward innovations in HIV prevention and treatment — including broadly accessible HIV vaccines and antibodies — and to amplify the voices of communities whose health experiences are most often silenced.
Here are the ways we are contributing to AIDS 2020 Virtual, together with our partners. Learn more about the conference and register here.
