Rapporteurs are charged with the important task of objectively recording the proceedings and groundbreaking presentations at AIDS 2018. Throughout the conference, an international team of rapporteurs will report on key conference highlights across all tracks, community activities, and the Global Village and Youth Programme. All summaries will be published on this page during the course of the week. A rapporteur session will be held immediately before the closing session on Friday, 27 July 2018. This session synthesizes the presentations made during the week, focusing on critical issues addressed, important results presented and key recommendations put forward.
