The end of AIDS as a global health threat: science-based or science fiction?
Venue: Conference Room 3
Ending the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat by 2030 is a clear vision based on sound scientific evidence. Achieving it will require continued research progress and evidence-informed implementation across biomedical, structural and behavioural domains. The UNAIDS vision combines the science with partnership-building, advocacy strengthening, resource mobilization and human rights promotion towards achieving universal access to HIV prevention, treatment and care. This side event will showcase progress made to date and highlight current and future challenges for biomedical and sociobehavioural science. It will provide an opportunity to present the cutting edge science in the context of other research perspectives that will take us to the end of AIDS and advocate for continued investment in the global scientific endeavour.
