AIDS: Taking a long term view
Date: Wednesday 1 December
The session features a preview of the forthcoming aids2031 book "AIDS: Taking a long-term view", to be published by FT Science Press and available from December 13.
aids2031 is a consortium of partners who came together to look at what we have learned about the AIDS response in the first three decades chart options to achieve the best possible outcome for the future. The year 2031 will mark 50 years of AIDS—aids2031 is not about what we should do in 2031, but what we can do differently now, to change the face of the pandemic by 2031. (www.aids2031.org)
Moderator: Heidi Larson, aids2031 Director
AIDS: Taking a long-term view takes a long-term view of the pandemic’s possible progress according to a variety of scenarios which anticipate funding changes, potential, yet uncertain, breakthrough discoveries, virus evolution, legal reform and political and social changes. The book concludes with a comprehensive set of recommendations.
