Earlier this month, the International AIDS Conference – the world’s largest conference on HIV and AIDS – took place on a virtual stage. Over five days, the conference showcased the latest research and analysis by leaders in the HIV sector. On Friday, July 24, the CSIS Global Health Policy Center and KFF (the Kaiser Family Foundation) held a public event to discuss the outcomes of the AIDS 2020 Virtual Conference. The discussion covered scientific developments, current HIV/AIDS funding levels, progress towards global targets, and the intersection of HIV and Covid-19. In addition, panelists discussed the conference’s virtual platform and look forward to the next International AIDS Conference in 2022.
