Invest in Communities Now! - Aidsfonds side-event
23 July 2018 at 9AM-12AM
Aidsfonds invites you to kick-start the AIDS conference at our communities side-event. As investments in communities are not reaching its targets, communities and funders will go in dialogue with each other about the need of increased investments in communities. Download the announcement for more info and sign-up.
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.
HIV NEXT GEN Youth Conference 22-24 July
A conference designed for the next generation of scientists and activists committed to end the HIV epidemic. HIV Next Gen will provoke, inspire and mobilize young adults to play an integral role in the future of HIV research, science, and healthcare. Its carefully curated program will successfully integrate science, technology and culture to create a highly interactive, educational, and skill-building event.
I will Speak, I will Speak!- Exhibition
22 July - 2 August
ATLAS2018 will present a unique exhibition with stories of men and women who are living with HIV. They visited all six continents to let them speak in their own words. There will be speakers, yoga classes, a daily talk show, discussions, live recordings, parties and a showing every day of the documentary “I will Speak, I will Speak!”
HIV and AIDS activists from all over the world will take part in the traditional protest march during the International AIDS Conference. Before the official opening of the conference, various communities will make their voices heard, calling attention to issues such as human rights, access to medicines as well as political support and financing for the fight against HIV and AIDS.
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.
