Montreal, Canada, and virtually

After two years of focusing on COVID-19, FHI 360 is pleased to join colleagues, partners, advocates and friends in Montreal, Canada, at the 24th International AIDS Conference to share in the intentional recommitment to fighting the other global epidemic affecting humanity: HIV. 


From July 29 to August 2, 2022, FHI 360 will share how it has been preserving HIV services during the COVID-19 pandemic, to inform current and future HIV and public health responses. Presentations at the conference, as well as articles and videos here on fhi360.org, detail how FHI 360 is modernizing HIV services through telehealth innovations; fighting stigma around HIV; scaling up differentiated HIV prevention, testing and treatment models; and accelerating access to new HIV prevention technologies, such as long-acting injectable cabotegravir (CAB) for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).


In addition to delivering in-person presentations, FHI 360 will showcase live coverage of the AIDS 2022 conference on the event page. You can also follow us on social media before, during and after the conference to learn all about what FHI 360 is doing to bring lifesaving medications to people living with HIV and to provide choices for HIV prevention.
