Held every two years, the IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention includes many sessions on a range of HIV-related topics. Approximately 4,000 scientists, community leaders, public health experts and advocates met between June 30-July 3 in the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center.

The full conference schedule may be found on the IAS 2013 website along with a number of roadmaps that identify sessions focused on specific issues, including AIDS vaccines and biomedical prevention, treatment as prevention and towards an HIV cure.

In addition, we wanted to be sure to draw your attention to a few sessions taking place at IAS 2013 of particular interest to prevention research advocates:

Once again NAM/AIDSMAP was the official provider of online scientific reporting from the conference. Clinical Care Options provided scientific analysis of the news announced in Kuala Lumpur. IAS provided “The Daily Bulletin” on their website with news and information from each day of the conference once the proceedings begin. You may also follow their Facebook page.
