Next week, MSH will join more than 15,000 global leaders, policymakers, researchers, and advocates at the 22nd International AIDS Conference: "Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges." AIDS 2018 aims to promote human rights-based and evidence-informed HIV responses that are tailored to the needs of particularly vulnerable communities—including displaced populations, men who have sex with men, sex workers, transgender people, women and girls, and young people.
The USAID-funded Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) is holding an end-of-program event on March 1, in Arlington, VA.
We’ll be discussing progress made toward ensuring that quality, life-saving essential medicine and services are available and affordable to those who need them. We’ll also explore goals and challenges for the future of pharmaceutical systems strengthening and advance a vision of what it takes to build resilient, responsive pharmaceutical systems that promote good health outcomes.
Join us for the 9th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Science in Paris, France. This year, we have an impressive lineup of poster presentations that showcase the inspiring and ambitious work MSH is doing to improve HIV treatment and care around the world, particularly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Malawi, Nigeria, and Swaziland.
Please join the Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) project partner, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, and other implementing partners to learn about 10 years of pioneering USAID-supported programming to ensure men who have sex with men (MSM) and people living with HIV (PLHIV) in the Middle East and North Africa have access to HIV prevention, care, and treatment services.HIV, MSM, and PLHIV activists from Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco, and Tunisia will discuss implementing HIV and civil society strengthening programs in a highly restrictive and hostile environment.RSVP here
South Africa has the most people living with HIV in the world and also surrounds the world’s highest-prevalence countries — Lesotho (22.9 percent prevalence rate) and Swaziland (27.4 percent prevalence rate). This year's conference, held in Durban June 9-12, will focus on "reflection, refocus and renewal" in the fight against AIDS.
Between 2005 and 2013, AIDS-related deaths in South Africa fell by 39 percent, but the country still accounts for nearly one in four new infections in sub-Saharan Africa, which makes this year’s conference the most important one yet.
International Women's Day 2015 Event
Women and girls experience widespread inequalities in socioeconomic power, education, and gender-based violence, resulting in lack of access to health services (including reproductive health and family planning services), which lead to detrimental health outcomes. For example, every day 800 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth, and women and girls face increased vulnerability to HIV/AIDS.
Join MSH and our partners from July 20-25 at the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia! At this year’s conference, MSH is coordinating and participating in three satellite events, presenting posters, and hosting a booth at the exhibition hall.
Please join MSH and our partners at the 17th International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA) , including a special event on targeting zero in the post-2015 world, abstract and poster presentations by MSH staff, an interactive conference booth, and much more.
