22nd International AIDS Conference

July 23, 2018 - 12:15am - July 27, 2018 - 11:30am
Venue: 
RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre

 

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.

Strengthening health systems is at the core of MSH's response to HIV and AIDS. We work worldwide to prevent, treat, and manage HIV and AIDS and build systems for health that deliver gender-responsive, high-quality services for marginalized, hard-to-reach populations.

At AIDS 2018, our staff will share what we’ve learned through our HIV services and programs, including our work in Angola, Malawi, and Nigeria.
