Conferences


Education, networking and the promotion of best practice are essential to enhancing the response to HIV/AIDS. Through the platforms of the IAS conferences we provide opportunities to identify gaps, share experience, and increase knowledge and expertise of professionals working in HIV/ AIDS.

The IAS is the custodian of the International AIDS Conference, the largest regular conference on any health or development issue. These prestigious conferences provide a unique forum for the interaction of science, community and leadership, and strengthen an evidence-based policy and programmatic response to the epidemic. The conferences also provide an opportunity to intensify political and financial commitments to AIDS, and include the largest international conference scholarship programme in HIV/AIDS.

The IAS also organizes the IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention. This conference focuses on the biomedical aspects of HIV/AIDS. It brings together individuals and organizations from around the world to address current issues in HIV basic, clinical and prevention science.
