This year the IAS conference was held under somber remembrance for the six delegates who were travelling to the meeting as passengers on flight MH17. This loss and their lives was included in many of the conference sessions and events.

In an early statement, the IAS confirmed that the meeting would continue in recognition of these individuals work and the broad goals that brought delegates, many of them travelling long distances, to focus on ending HIV.

Although the location this year is likely to have affected attendance – with approximately 14,000 delegates, compared to close to double this figure for the Washington meeting in 2012, this made the meeting easier to navigate.

As with previous meetings, the programme for the meeting is accessible online using the programme at a glance link from the conference website.

Some programme sessions include the option to download PowerPoint slides for some of the slides (use the link underneath the full session listing), and some have links to webcasts.

Other webcasts are linked to the IAS YouTube channel:
