The biennial International AIDS Conference truly is the premier meeting where science, leadership and community meet for advancing all facets of our collective efforts to treat and prevent HIV. AIDS 2016 represents a tremendous opportunity to show how much progress South Africa has made in implementing and funding evidence-based prevention and treatment interventions. Gathering in Durban, scientists, policymakers, world leaders, and people living with HIV will discuss together successes and challenges specific to that country and the current global epidemic trends. Together we will share best practices, learn from one another’s experience and develop new strategies and collaborations.
AIDS 2016 is expected to convene over 18,000 delegates from around the world including up to 1,000 journalists. The conference will be held from 18-22 July 2016 at the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC). The International AIDS Society, the world’s leading independent association of HIV professionals, is organizing AIDS 2016 in collaboration with international, regional and national partners.
