AIDS 2018 Conference

Burnet Institute researchers will be attending and playing an active role in the 22nd annual International AIDS Conference, AIDS 2018, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from 23 to 27 July.

The conference convenes the world’s experts to advance knowledge about HIV, present new research findings, and promote and enhance global scientific and community collaborations in synergy with other health and development sectors.

An important aspect of AIDS 2018 is the promotion of human rights based and evidence-informed HIV responses that are tailored to the needs of particularly vulnerable communities.

This includes people living with HIV, displaced populations, men who have sex with men, people in closed settings, people who use drugs, sex workers, transgender people, women and girls and young people.

The conference will activate political commitment and accountability among governments, donors, private sector and civil society for an inclusive, sustainable and adequately financed response to HIV and associated co-infections and comorbidities.

It will also endeavour to highlight the critical role of HIV prevention, in particular among young people, and its integration in a range of health care settings, and spotlight the state of the epidemic in Eastern Europe and Central Asia with a focus on investments, structural determinants and services.
