Sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) pre-conference

Saturday, 21 July 2018

Poor sexual and reproductive health and HIV share common root causes, and yet the respective responses to HIV and to SRHR remain largely unaligned and uncoordinated. Now more than ever, there is a need for joint action, but this need remains underappreciated, inadequately resourced and insufficiently leveraged for the greater good.

This pre-conference is aimed at creating a vibrant and inclusive platform on which to foster thematic learning and networking focused on this integration, facilitate global connections, and further unite HIV and SRHR responses to achieve the ambitious targets set within the Sustainable Development Goals, including lessons learned on the impact of the Global Gag Rule.

With the Netherlands, a long-standing champion and supporter of SRHR, as the host country, AIDS 2018 provides the perfect opportunity to help guarantee the health, rights and general well-being of all people, including women and girls, people living with HIV and key populations.

SUNDAY PRE-CONFERENCES THAT REQUIRE SIGN-UP

Nursing pre-conference: Enhancing nursing workforce capacity to achieve HIV epidemic control and positive health outcomes

Sunday, 22 July 2018

Hosted by the ANAC, global nursing leaders, this pre-conference is intended for nurses, nurse allies, other healthcare workers, policy makers and donors. ANAC will address the divide between frontline health workers, in particular the nursing workforce, and policy makers and donors. All three stakeholders aim for epidemic control, yet do not always work in sync to achieve this goal. Unrecognized barriers to nursing workforce capacity reduce efficiency, stunt innovation and perpetuate missed opportunities.

This session will utilize a nursing perspective to examine the barriers and identify solutions to enhance antiretroviral scale up, effective prevention, and better population and individual health outcomes in both resource-rich and resource-limited settings. Through expert panels and participant involvement, we will identify recommendations and pathways to maximize the impact of nurses and other frontline health workers.

U=U 2018: Celebrate, activate and implement!

Sunday, 22 July 2018

The lives of people with HIV will never be the same again. People worldwide are mobilizing to put an end to misinformation about HIV transmission by spreading the news that Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U). With research confirming that people on effective HIV treatment cannot pass on the virus to sexual partners, U=U has the power to transform HIV prevention and care and to liberate people from stigma and fear.

The U=U pre-conference will bring global partners together for the first time to celebrate this message of freedom and hope. By learning about the latest science, messaging and advocacy campaigns around the globe, participants will gain the tools to put these groundbreaking facts into action in their own communities. Come and join a growing movement of more than 550 partners in 70 countries. Together, we will rewrite the HIV risk narrative and break the barriers that have held back people with HIV for too long.

Community Activist Summit

Sunday, 22 July 2018

In 2003, over 120 treatment activists from 67 countries gathered in Cape Town, South Africa for the first International Treatment Preparedness Summit. It was a time when HIV treatment access was poor, and activists were still grappling with the brunt of the epidemic. Fifteen years later, how far have we come? What is the state of our activism today? And, how do we set a radical agenda for what is left to do?

These are the questions we as activists will try to answer. Using tech-powered panel discussions and interactive dialogue sessions, activists will strategize and develop concrete next steps to effectively advocate for the right to health for ALL. Make sure your voice is heard!

The Summit is intended for PLHIV and key population activists, civil society advocates, program implementers, government officials, and all stakeholders interested in and seeking to influence a global, community-led HIV advocacy agenda.

Meeting 90-90-90 targets is not the end of AIDS

Sunday, 22 July 2018

Join us at the Joep Lange Institute pre-conference, hosted by Chairs Mark Dybul, Nduku Kilonzo and Lillian Mworeko, where we will challenge and activate you to use your experience and creativity to be smarter, better and more targeted in the HIV response. The global 90-90-90 targets are ambitious, however meeting them is not the end of AIDS. The response needs to be faster and better.

We gather key stakeholders to unpack the challenges that threaten a successful and sustainable global HIV response. Our agenda:

  • Reinvigorate primary prevention - we need substantial investment in primary HIV prevention
  • Lifelong quality treatment - treatment must be of quality and for life
  • Innovative HIV funding approaches are needed - integration of HIV into UHC strategies is essential for effective HIV response and for successful UHC strategy
  • Scale up community-based service delivery and advocacy – communities need resources to effectively deliver services, and to reach and engage the most vulnerable
  • In defence of human rights - HIV is as much a socio-political problem as it is medical

Making it happen!
Addressing gaps in the HIV care continuum through implementation science; translating evidence into policy and practice

Sunday, 22 July 2018

In the field of HIV, implementation science (IS) can help develop and measure evidence-based strategies to improve service delivery across the HIV care continuum (prevention, linkage to and retention in care), as well as overall quality of life. IS identifies barriers to the translation of evidence into policy and practice.

Utilizing a collaborative committee of academic institution experts in IS, health care providers and community representatives, this workshop will be both theoretical and tactical to explore IS research/frameworks, provide opportunities to discuss key learnings thus far, raise awareness of the relevance of IS to HIV, and create a sense of urgency about its importance in the field of HIV. If we are going to achieve the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets, we need to identify gaps in the HIV care continuum and utilize an IS approach to drive consistency and information sharing, and ultimately improve outcomes for PLHIV.

The 4th HIV Exposed Uninfected (HEU) Child and Adolescent Workshop

Sunday, 22 July 2018

In high HIV burden countries, up to 30% of children are now HIV exposed uninfected (HEU) but not HIV unaffected, as HEU children experience worse outcomes than their unexposed peers. Since 2015, the HEU Child and Adolescent Workshop has provided a unique forum for policy and scientific dialogue around the short, medium and long-term well-being of HEU children.

This year, we will look beyond the biological consequences of HIV-exposure to explore its implications for early childhood development policy and programming and its psychosocial impact on adolescents. Join us for an exciting half-day session of expert presentations, interactive panel discussions and open dialogue around the personal and public health implications of these challenges.

TB 2018 – Bridging the TB and HIV communities

Sunday, 22 July 2018

Similar to HIV, tuberculosis (TB) often affects the most vulnerable populations. TB/HIV co-infection is a major obstacle in the response to HIV, with HIV causing a more than 20-fold increase in the risk of latent TB reactivation, and TB accelerating the decline of immune function among people living with HIV. With at least one-third of people living with HIV co-infected with latent TB, the ramifications of TB/HIV co-infection are staggering.

TB 2018 will be an opportunity to highlight the key scientific challenges related to TB and TB/HIV research on prevention, diagnosis and treatment to set the stage for the UN General Assembly high-level meeting on TB. With the theme, Bridging the TB and HIV communities, TB 2018 will focus on cutting-edge research gaps to address concrete service delivery issues, translating science into practice.
