Turning the Tide on HIV/AIDS: 2012 International AIDS Conference
Streaming multiple speakers from 2012 AIDS Conference
Friday, December 7, 2012
8:45am - 5:00pm 102 Mann Library
The BCTR presents a day-long “hub conference” streaming in sessions from the July 2012 International AIDS Conference (IAC). This hub conference will focus on preventing mother-to-child transmission as well as on structural inequalities, their impact on the HIV epidemic, and strategies for “turning the tide together.” Four keystone sessions from the IAC will be streamed in, and local conveners will facilitate discussion.
The event will bring together faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, university staff, and local community members to build on key sessions from AIDS 2012. The overarching theme will reflect the focus of both World AIDS Day and of the International AIDS Conference: “Getting to zero: Zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS-related deaths”. Participants will hear about cutting edge research from leading experts from around the world and will gain insights to inform their current and future work.
