In July 2016, the International AIDS Conference returned to Durban where it was hosted 16 years ago. The 21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016) attracted more than 15,000 participants including UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, actor and activist Charlize Theron, singer and philanthropist Sir Elton John, Prince Harry of Wales, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Chair Bill Gates, and many others. The programme included 16 pre-conferences, including the fifth annual Towards an HIV Cure Symposium, TB2016, and pre-conference sessions focused on the rights and contributions of men who have sex with men, transgender people, and adolescents, along with many other topics.
