25th anniversary of the IAS

The International AIDS Society (IAS) celebrated twenty-five years of commitment in 2013 as the world’s largest association of HIV professionals. Thanks to its advocacy work and to the diversity, expertise and dynamism of its membership and leadership, the IAS has contributed to shaping the global response to the HIV epidemic and will continue to do so in the upcoming years.


Looking back with the IAS Presidents

To mark the 25th anniversary of the International AIDS Society, we captured the memories and observations of all 13 IAS Presidents from 1998 onwards through a series of video interviews. Each of our Presidents looks back on their tenure as IAS President and reflects on the development of the HIV epidemic and what impacted them the most over during the last 30 years.
