About the webinar

The deadlines for major milestones in HIV control are drawing near. After decades of concerted efforts and dedicated investment, HIV epidemic control is expected this year (2020) in several countries. But, the COVID-19 response in low- and middle-income countries will build on the same infrastructure currently serving HIV, particularly health facilities, laboratories, human resources and community-based resources. How do we deploy a COVID-19 response while preserving the gains against HIV?
