9th IAS Conference on HIV Science

The IAS Conference is the largest open scientific conference on HIV and AIDS related issues. The conference co-chairs say the conference brings together “a broad cross-section of more than 6,000 professionals from around the world to meet and examine the latest scientific developments in HIV-related research with a focus on moving science into practice and policy.”

This year’s conference will feature new research on:

  • Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP): evidence on long-term effectiveness, new formulations and user preferences.
  • HIV eradication: can the reservoir of HIV-infected cells be reduced by new approaches?
  • What do cancer research and HIV cure research have to teach other?
  • Self-testing: what impact does self-testing have on improving knowledge of HIV status?
  • New drug combinations for first-line treatment.
  • Prevention for adolescents.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
