Stay Tuned: We’re Headed to the International AIDS Conference
The International AIDS Conference (IAC) is the world’s most attended conference on HIV and AIDS. It’s happening July 22 – 27, 2012 in Washington, D.C., and we will be there highlighting the models of care, tools, and policies necessary to get the best treatment to the most people.
The theme of the conference this year is “Turning the Tide Together,” in reference to the new understanding that antiretroviral therapy (ART) can significantly reduce HIV transmission, a discovery that has stimulated scientific and political leaders to claim that ending the AIDS epidemic is now a realistic goal. At the same time, despite last year’s major international political commitments to put 15 million people on treatment by 2015, large funding gaps threaten the gains already made and limit the potential to capitalize on the latest scientific progress.
If you’ll be at the conference, stop by to see us at booth 18 in Exhibit Hall C and follow @msf_iac on Twitter.
