Results of the MaxART programme in Swaziland
Is Early ART for All feasible in a government-managed health system? Is it effeective and acceptable? Can we afford it? At this satellite session all answers to these questions and results of the MaxART implementation study in Swaziland will be presented.
Invest in Communities Now! - Aidsfonds side-event
23 July 2018 at 9AM-12AM
Though there is a global consensus that the community response must be supported, funding to communities is still far behind international commitments. By bringing together community representatives and key donors, we will discuss challenges & opportunities to better serve, empower and invest in community responses.
Fast Forward Award
The Fast Forward Award searches for ‘golden eggs’ – innovative interventions organised by and for the community. We aim to link these innovative local solutions with donors in order to increase funding for communities and scale up successful approaches. Deadline for proposals has already expired and 5 organisations are short-listed.

Apart from the conference venue a lot of activities will take place in and around Amsterdam. Check out the events calender to see what's happening in the run-up to AIDS 2018.
The International AIDS Conference is the largest conference on any global health issue in the world. First convened during the peak of the AIDS epidemic in 1985, it continues to provide a unique forum for the intersection of science, advocacy, and human rights. Each conference is an opportunity to strengthen policies and programmes that ensure an evidence-based response to the epidemic.
