#betterHIVcare: Insights and innovations at the 8th Southern African AIDS Conference
The 8th Southern African AIDS Conference will take place in Durban, South Africa, June 13-15, 2017. FHI 360 will participate extensively, sharing our scientific expertise and discussing how we continue to support the journey toward an AIDS-free generation.
We will have six oral presentations and several poster presentations related to the five conference tracks: 1) Basic and Clinical Sciences; 2) Epidemiology, Prevention and Public Health; 3) Social, Political, Economic and Health Systems; 4) Ethics, Marginalization and the Protection of Human Rights; and 5) Best Practices: Programmes, Communications and Community Engagement. If you are attending the conference, please visit us at stand number 9 in the Exhibition Hall. See our complete list of presentations.
FHI 360, along with USAID and PEPFAR, will host a pre-conference session on June 12: Differentiated Models of Care across the HIV Continuum: Insights and Innovations. In this presentation, thought leaders and technical experts will address new service delivery models for HIV prevention, care and treatment that are adapted to the specific needs of particular subgroups of patients. The presentation promises to generate many new ideas for patient care.
FHI 360 is a proud media partner of the conference. We will be capturing emerging content and conference-related news and making it available in one central location on our digital hub. We invite the international development community to follow the digital conversation at #SAAIDS2017 and submit your blogs, videos, research, toolkits and other resources to the hub (subject to editorial review).
