HIV Programmes

The Towards an HIV Cure project is an initiative of the International AIDS Society (IAS). The mission of the project is to provide leadership in advocating for increased investment in HIV cure research and to facilitate more concerted efforts to accelerate global scientific research.

The Collaborative Initiative for Paediatric HIV Education and Research (CIPHER) of the International AIDS Society (IAS) is aimed at optimizing clinical management and delivery of services to infants, children and adolescents affected by HIV in resource-limited settings through advocacy and research promotion.

The JIAS was founded in 2004 by the International AIDS Society (IAS) as a platform to disseminate essential HIV research with the mission to contribute to an evidence-based response to the HIV epidemic and to support research capacity building in resource-limited settings.

The Industry Liaison Forum (ILF), established in 2001, is a mechanism to inform and support collaboration and partnership between diverse stakeholders (including industry) and the IAS. It performs this broad task by providing opportunities for industry to understand the IAS’s values, interests and priorities, and vice versa, seeking common ground to enhance the impact of the global response to HIV and related co-morbidities.

Over the past few years, significant progress has been made towards the goal of universal access to HIV prevention, treatment and care. Nevertheless Key Populations — those most vulnerable and likely to be exposed to HIV– remain severely underserved in too many settings, with HIV continuing to affect these populations disproportionally.

The Differentiated Care project is an initiative of the International AIDS Society (IAS) to support countries in adopting models that optimize the delivery of ART care both for the patient and the health system.
