FHI 360 Highlights at AIDS 2018

July 19, 2018

FHI 360 will join colleagues from around the world July 23–27, 2018, in Amsterdam, Netherlands, to celebrate achievements toward epidemic control in several countries by 2020. The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) defines epidemic control as that point in time when the annual number of new HIV infections is lower than the number of deaths caused by HIV. Like many other stakeholders, FHI 360 is focusing our research and programming to achieve this goal.

Below are some of the many ways FHI 360 will be sharing our research and programming.
