About the COVID-19 Conference
The International AIDS Society (IAS) will host a virtual COVID-19 Conference on 10-11 July 2020, shining a spotlight on the latest science, policy and practice of the pandemic. This is in recognition of the urgent need to analyse research, review policy and exchange frontline experiences related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The special one-day COVID-19 conference will take place online on Friday, 10 July as part of the 23rd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2020: Virtual). It will feature a free-of-charge programme of plenary, invited-speaker and abstract-driven sessions exclusively dedicated to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of the global experts gathering for AIDS 2020: Virtual, 6-10 July, are also leading voices in SARS-CoV-2 virology, immunology, vaccines, clinical care and therapeutic guidelines, and trials. Rather than draw their attention away from the ongoing crisis, the virtual one-day conference will provide a unique opportunity for them to help shape the evolving global response to COVID-19.
