AIDS 2016 Highlights

It was such an honor to attend the 21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016) in Durban, South, Africa. I was selected for a full scholarship to attend as a community member amongst the 15,000 attendees, representing 153 countries. This year, the International AIDS Society (IAS) was able to triple the number of community scholarships, offering over 900 scholarships!

One aspect I love about this conference is that it gives space for science and it gives space for activism.  The conference included sessions and workshops on HIV science, programs and advocacy. I’m really interested in treatment advocacy and women’s research, so I tried to attend many of those sessions. I was thrilled to learn that more than half (54%) of the selected abstracts had a female author!
