Affiliated Independent Events, held by organizations or individuals external to the IAS, will take place around the activities of AIDS 2024. To qualify, events must address HIV- and AIDS-related topics, co-infections and/or issues faced by people living with and affected by HIV and/or organizations responding to the HIV pandemic. They may be population or issue specific, and they can take various shapes. These can be workshops, pre-meetings, forums, art exhibits or theatre. The IAS encourages event submitters to be creative when developing their events to address HIV and AIDS in new and original ways.

All Affiliated Independent Events will be published on the conference website and may be promoted on AIDS 2024 social media channels.

Your event must meet the following criteria to be recognized as an AIDS 2024 Affiliated Independent Event:

  • It must take place between 1 May and 15 August 2024.
  • It must take place outside the AIDS 2024 venue.
  • It must take place outside the official AIDS 2024 programme hours.
    These are: Monday, 22 July, to Friday, 26 July 2024, from 08:30 to 18:30 CEST.

Please note that the IAS is not responsible for the organization, funding or final content of any such event. The content and management of the event are the sole responsibility of the event organizers. There is no cost involved in applying for your event to be considered or approved as an Affiliated Independent Event.
