On July 22, 2012, XIX International AIDS Conference commenced in Washington, DC.
Almost twenty five thousand of scientists, policy makers, health workers, and people affected by HIV from 195 countries, gathered to examine where the world stands in its response to AIDS and consider how to collectively chart the way forward.
The AIDS 2012 program will present new scientific knowledge and offer many opportunities for structured dialogue on the major issues facing the global response to HIV. A variety of session types – from abstract-driven presentations to symposia, bridging and plenary sessions – will meet the needs of various participants.
