Spotlight on Pre-Conferences and Affiliated Events


Dear Ias,

As a registered delegate for the 21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016), pre-conference meetings are part of your registration package. In addition, there are some exciting affiliated independent events to have on your radar.

The pre-conference programme – a select group of independently organized meetings – will take place for the first time within the main conference venue, the International Convention Centre (ICC), on 16-17 July, immediately before the opening of AIDS 2016. If you have not already, you can sign up for a total of three pre-conferences.

A series of affiliated independent events will take place outside the conference venue and hours, including receptions, performances, meetings, forums and galas. Registration for affiliated independent events are directly managed through the event organizer, not AIDS 2016.
Pre-conference spotlight: NursingHIV

The NursingHIV pre-conference will cover topics related to HIV nursing workforce development, regulation, policy, education and quality of care, and will highlight a call to action to support a strong global nursing workforce. NursingHIV 2016 will take place on 16 July. Please contact for more information.
