Reports from AIDS 2016 and linked workshops

AIDS 2016 combined logoThe 21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016) was held from 18 – 22 July 2016 in the coastal town of Durban in South Africa.

Attended by more than 18,000 delegates, this vital meeting covers all aspects of HIV research: from early basic science studies looking at mechanisms for a cure to real world practice for ensuring human rights are respected for the 35 million people living with HIV globally.

Historically, this meeting is significant for returning to Durban, sixteen years after the World AIDS Conference was first held in an African country.

Over this time, remarkable advances have been made in global healthcare but a continued theme for the meeting was that this work is still only half completed. Although more than 17 million people now access HIV treatment (ART) globally, universal access is increasingly raised as the most appropriate target if the HIV epidemic is to ever be reduced.

Several important workshops were held before the main conference, including meetings focused on paediatrics, TB confection and HIV cure.
