The 21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016) to be held in Durban from the 18th to the 22nd July will offer a best-in-class programme of over 500 conference activities and sessions driven by top science and research discoveries.
As the conference remains a vital tool for continuing medical education, the International AIDS Society (IAS) is proud to launch the IAS Educational Fund – a mechanism aimed to provide and invest in educational opportunities that support the frontline HIV workforce.
The IAS Educational Fund will enable 100 clinicians and 40 advocates to attend AIDS 2016. Additionally, it will offer increased virtual access to conference content and a series of symposia hosted in targeted countries to strengthen scientific and programmatic knowledge from a global perspective that is relevant at a local level.
Due to limited resources and professional demands, it has become increasingly difficult for clinicians, HIV service providers and advocates to access the latest research and science. The IAS Educational Fund seeks to address this by building a stronger linkage between the latest discoveries presented at the international conferences and the implementation and scale-up of those discoveries.IAS Educational Fund material
