Next week, members of the HIV community from around the globe will gather virtually for the 23rd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2020: Virtual) and, once again, HIV.gov and NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) are partnering to share highlights of the latest HIV research advances coming out of the conference.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the International AIDS Society (IAS), which organizes the biennial conference, decided to hold the first virtual edition of the conference from July 6-10. The latest advances in basic, clinical, and prevention research as well as innovations in social sciences and new insights into effective program rollout will all be presented in virtual sessions accessible in real time or on demand for registered delegates. Community networking, including exhibitions, workshops, the Global Village, satellite sessions, and pre-conferences also will reach audiences around the world. For more information on the conference visit www.aids2020.org.
