Here’s a first look at some of the sessions delegates will see in San Francisco and Oakland next July:
Pushing the boundaries: New approaches to a cure
Where are we in the efforts to finding a cure for HIV? This session will present the newest strategies in HIV cure research and the gaps and challenges to achieve HIV remission and eradication.

It’s a man’s world: Are women losing out when it comes to biomedical HIV prevention?
The newest PrEP option has been approved with an indication that explicitly excludes women. This session will explore ways to ensure women do not lose out on biomedical HIV prevention options.

Bound but not gagged: Resilience in the era of the global gag rule
What is the impact of the global gag rule globally and domestically? How is the response to HIV affected? This session will address the impact on women and girls in all their diversity and ways to be resilient in a changing sexual and reproductive health landscape.

Syndemics of HIV and substance use: Gaps and advances
Opioid use disorders have become a global epidemic, threatening to slow the progress made in reducing HIV infections. This session will highlight the need to implement health interventions that combine harm reduction measures with HIV-specific services.

Borderless: HIV risks and service delivery for internally displaced people and global migrants
HIV has no borders so why does HIV programming continue to neglect internally displaced people and migrants? This session will explore ways to deliver HIV services to people on the move.

The epidemic of loneliness: Addressing isolation as a key component in the HIV response
The isolation epidemic is an emerging global challenge that has profound impacts on health, wellness and access to health services. This session will highlight how interventions addressing isolation and building social empowerment have a positive impact in the HIV response.
