IAS COVID-19 Conference: introduction

10-11 July 2020, virtual meeting


Simon Collins, HIV i-Base

The two-day IAS workshop on COVID-19 at the end of the main AIDS 2020 meeting included excellent overview summaries with and oral abstract driven programme and additional posters.

COVID-19 has preoccupied global health for most of this year and it is right that IAS prioritised this with a special meeting. More than 11,000,000 people have been infected and more than 530,000 people have died.

Many HIV doctors and researchers – grounded in infection diseases – and related health workers including community activists have diverted time and resources into the response to COVID-19.
