AIDS 2020: Virtual

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 23rd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2020), that was held on 6-10 July 2020, became the first virtual edition of the International AIDS Conference.

AIDS 2020: Virtual enabled delegates to access and engage with the latest HIV science, advocacy and knowledge traditionally presented at the conference. It was a combination of virtual sessions and community networking, including exhibitions, workshops, the Global Village, satellites and pre-conferences, that reached audiences around the world. 

The theme of this year’s conference was Resilience and, according to the organizers, “there is no better word to describe the HIV community and our ability to come together in a shared commitment to the global HIV response.” 

The latest UIPHP research results on various aspects of the HIV epidemic in Ukraine were presented at the virtual poster sessions of the Conference:
