AIDS 2016 Preview: Toward an HIV Cure, New Drugs, PrEP Update and More
July 12, 2016
The International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016) returns to Durban, South Africa, this year. The last time the conference convened in Durban was in 2000, when the theme was "Breaking the Silence" and Nelson Mandela delivered the closing address.
Now, over a decade later, we may have broken the silence, but there's still much more to do. The theme for AIDS 2016 is "Access Equity Rights Now," which, among other goals, is a call for action to "reach the people who still lack access to comprehensive treatment, prevention, care and support services," and "strengthen the commitment to HIV research evidence-based interventions."
The meeting takes place from July 18-22, and TheBodyPRO.com will be on-site to provide updates and analysis on the latest HIV news.
But before we get there, here's a preview of what to expect:
Towards an HIV Cure Symposium
Treatment Evolution: New Drugs, New Reality
PrEP: New Drugs, New Questions
Progress in HIV Vaccines and the Road to the Clinic
