The convening of the 20th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014) in Melbourne, Australia, in July 2014 represented a tremendous opportunity to highlight the diverse nature of the Asia Pacific region’s HIV epidemic and the unique responses to it. Gathering in Melbourne, the conference has worked together to strengthen our efforts across all regions and around the world, building on the momentum of recent scientific advances and the momentum from AIDS 2012.

The AIDS 2014 Conference Programme seeks to promote scientific excellence and inquiry, encourage individual and collective action, foster multi-sectoral dialogue and constructive debate, and reinforce accountability amongst all stakeholders. Sessions focused on the latest issues in HIV science, policy and practice and sought to share key research findings, lessons learned, best practices, as well as identify gaps in knowledge. The conference featured abstract-driven sessions, a daily plenary session, a variety of symposia sessions, professional development workshops, and independently organized satellite meetings. In addition, the conference programme included a number of programme activities, such as the Global Village and the Youth Programme, which are an integral aspect of the International AIDS Conference.
