The world’s largest open scientific conference on HIV/AIDS – The 6th IAS conference on HIV pathogenesis, treatment and prevention (IAS 2011) - is being held in Rome, Italy. The event is organized by the IAS, in partnership with Istituto Superiore di Sanità (Italian National Institute of Health), which is the leading technical and scientific body of the Italian National Health Service.
Held every two years, the conference attracts about 5,000 delegates from all over the world. It is a unique opportunity for the world’s leading scientists, clinicians, public health experts and community leaders to examine the latest developments in HIV-related research, and to explore how scientific advances can – in very practical ways – inform the global response to HIV/AIDS. WHO will be organizing and participating in a number of sessions at the conference.
