The end of AIDS is up to us

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 24th Apr 2018

Advances in testing, prevention and treatment for HIV infection mean that the people who receive effective treatment are uninfectious and therefore unable to pass the virus on to others, including sexual partners and unborn babies. Effective treatment also means that the life expectancy of people living with HIV is the same, and in some cases, greater than that of the general population.

The availability of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) - medication taken by people at risk of catching HIV has had ground-breaking effects on HIV transmission in many parts of the world.

However, there are still many countries where HIV treatment is not widely available or accessible to all who need it, and HIV related stigma remains a significant barrier to access to effective prevention and treatment services.

Cost: Free of Charge
