Towards an HIV Cure: Engaging the Community Workshop
16 July 2016 | Durban, South Africa

The Towards an HIV Cure: Engaging the Community Workshop, organized as a pre-symposium (2016 Towards an HIV Cure Symposium) activity served as an educational platform to engage the community around HIV cure research and provided accessible information on the current research.

The three-hour workshop on Saturday morning, was open to all, and aimed in particular at community representatives, young researchers, researchers from outside the field and the wider public interested in learning more about the current research directions and challenges for an HIV cure.

The interactive workshop discussed the research priorities outlined in the 2016 Global Scientific Strategy: Towards an HIV Cure, launched in Durban in July 2016, and included an interactive panel discussion to address key topics pertinent to HIV cure research.
