Towards an HIV Cure: Community Engagement Workshop
21 July 2018 | Amsterdam, the Netherlands
An incredible strength of the HIV response is the broad engagement of stakeholders, including people living with HIV and communities, and informed advocacy. As the HIV cure research field develops, it is important to translate the latest research and make sure it is accessible to the community to leverage a well-informed, multi-disciplinary network of stakeholders to advocate for the continued prioritization of HIV cure in the global health agenda.
The IAS is partnering with international and local civil society organizations to organize an interactive 1-day research literacy workshop as an AIDS 2018 pre-conference event to provide accessible information on current research directions, emerging collaborations with fields beyond HIV, and challenges for an HIV cure. The workshop will be open to AIDS 2018 delegates interested in learning about the HIV cure field, but aimed in particular at peer educators, advocates, young researchers, and researchers from outside the field.
