Chair:

IAS Members are invited to participate in a scientific session and reception that has been developed exclusively for them. This session will include an update from the IAS Secretariat as well as an in depth discussion of the challenges facing IAS Members and the field of HIV. There will also be an opportunity to welcome incoming IAS Governing Council Members and thank those who will finish their term at the end of the Conference. The panel discussion will be looking back at the challenges that were faced at the 13th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2000) in Durban, and reflecting on the challenges that HIV – and global health – are facing today and in the future. To make sure participants have the opportunity to network with speakers and members, there will be a reception at the end of the session.
