Can We End the Epidemic? TUSA08

Organiser: AVAC
Non-Commercial Satellite Back
Venue: MR 3
Time: 18:30 - 20:30, 19.07.2011
Code: TUSA08
Chair: Mitchell Warren, United States

With the rates of new HIV infections continuing to outpace the number of individuals who are able to start treatment, a global HIV prevention and treatment revolution is needed. Recent breakthrough clinical trials of topical microbicides, oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), vaccines and treatment as prevention show that each can reduce HIV infections. At the same time, successes with medical male circumcision programs and behavioral change in severely impacted countries are leading to a renewed focus on new combination approaches to HIV prevention.

As research brings us closer to having the additional tools to lead a global prevention and treatment revolution, the question remains: How to do we translate promising starts into real solutions that can end the epidemic? "Can We End the Epidemic" raises the tough questions about how to start and sustain an HIV prevention revolution that could end AIDS.

There will be no formal PowerPoint presentations in this satellite session. Each panelist will provide opening remarks and the balance of the session time will be devoted to moderated discussion with panelists and audience members. Refreshments will be served at an informal reception following the conclusion of the program.
