The purpose of the event is to offer community representatives an opportunity to engage in the latest HIV research and to provide a forum to explore linkages between community and science in an informal, inclusive and vibrant atmosphere. This is also an opportunity for members of civil society, some of whom will not be able to attend the conference itself, to get an update on the latest findings on the HIV field, whilst respecting relevant embargoes. In the morning one co-chair from each conference track will share programme highlights with attendees. There will be an opportunity for Q&A. A networking lunch will follow. In the afternoon two discussions will take place. The first one is about Legal and Human Rights Aspects of HIV disclosure and criminalization; the second one is about Harm and Risk Reduction.


The organizers reserve the right to amend the programme.
