Join ASHM and NAPWHA for an update on the highlights of the track summary findings from AIDS 2022.

Date: Wednesday, 24th August 2022

Time: 12:00 noon – 13:00 (AEST)

With the AIDS 2022 conference recently finished and the Joint Australasian HIV & AIDS and Sexual Health Conferenceonly days away, we thought we would take the opportunity to discuss some of the key highlights from AIDS 2022 and what this means for our region. We have asked a panel of experts to consider the following questions:

  • How do the major points of discussion from AIDS 2022 affect the Australian response?
  • How are the issues from AIDS 2022 being presented and discussed at the Joint Australasian HIV & AIDS and Sexual Health Conferences at the end of August?
  • What can we be doing now to ensure that the global issues are focused upon at IAS 2023 in Brisbane next July?
  • Where can I learn/read/view more from AIDS 2022?

This session will focus upon how the key issues from AIDS 2022 can be translated to the Australian and regional response.

Professor Andrew Grulich, Program Head of the HIV Epidemiology and Prevention Program at the Kirby Institute and IAS Governing Council Member, will chair this hour-long lunchtime webinar and host a diverse panel of experts representing Australian perspectives from all six tracks at the AIDS 2022 conference. These rapid fire presentations will be followed by a Q&A session with the panel members.
