The COVID-19 pandemic represents an unprecedented global emergency that has now infected more than 3 million people worldwide and is already the most lethal new pandemic since the emergence of AIDS nearly 40 years ago.

In recognition of the urgent need to analyse research, review policy and exchange frontline experiences related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 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.

The virtual COVID-19 Conference will take place online on the last day of AIDS 2020: Virtual. It will feature a free-of-charge, stand-alone programme of plenary, invited-speaker and abstract-driven sessions exclusively dedicated to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Confirmed speakers include Dr Anthony Fauci and Ambassador Deborah Birx, MD, who are both members of the US White House COVID-19 Task Force, and Professor Salim Abdool Karim, Director of CAPRISA and Chair of the South African Ministry of Health COVID-19 Advisory Committee/COVID-19 MAC, among other experts working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response.
