Industry Liaison Forum

The International AIDS Society’s Industry Liaison Forum (ILF) highlights the perspective of the HIV biomedical industry and catalyses multi-stakeholder dialogue and engagement as well as reflections and actions to address barriers along the HIV – prevention, diagnostics and treatment – cascade.
