This year, the conference opened with important news about oral PrEP (including the PROUD and IPERGAY studies), gel PrEP and other HIV prevention options, including research to reduce mother to child transmission. Other key sessions included HIV-related complications, treatment for children, studies of new drugs in the pipeline and HIV pathogenesis – especially in the context of cure research.

Abstracts for each study are available in a searchable online database and some posters are available to download.
