AIDS 2022

AIDS 2022 logo

The world’s largest conference on HIV/AIDS, AIDS 2022, convenes July 27-August 2 in Montreal, Canada, (register for the full conference and the pre-conference). Hosted by the International AIDS Society, this 24th session of the conference will be the first since the pandemic to offer in-person and virtual access.

AIDS 2022 launches at a pivotal moment in HIV prevention. The ability to deliver two new proven PrEP methods will be determined by conversations and decisions happening now. These decisions will impact policies and funding for products in the pipeline and programs to deliver what’s available today for HIV prevention. It’s time to sharpen the agenda for HIV prevention and global health equity. AIDS 2022 will offer opportunities to engage in these conversations while getting up to date on the latest research, rollout, policy and advocacy.

Below AVAC has gathered resources to help you navigate the conference overall and find the sessions on prevention that we hope will interest you, keep you informed, and support conversations that will shape the future of the global response to HIV.
