The Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections

CROI is a scientific conference, bringing together the top researchers from around the world to share the latest studies, developments and research methods on HIV and related infectious diseases. The conference attracts more than 4000 HIV and AIDS research leaders internationally.

  • New ways of delivering pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and improving access to PrEP
  • The impact of newer antiretroviral drugs on the HIV reservoir
  • Cardiovascular disease in people with HIV
  • Strategies to improve the uptake of HIV testing
  • Progress towards the 90-90-90 targets
  • Advances in treatment and prevention of tuberculosis (TB).

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
