Un symposium satellite Anrs le lundi 23 juillet de 18h30 à 20h30 (mini room 6)

How Research Strengthens Care and Prevention in Resource Constrained Settings

Research programs, especially at ANRS, have led to major transformations in resource constrained settings. Scientific results have undoubtedly influenced the professional and non-professional approaches in care and prevention. Scientists and doctors from the South and from the North, all involved in major research programs on these issues will address the audience on the future.

Des colloques soutenus par l'Anrs

1) Ensuring a Supportive Environment for an Effective Long-Term HIV Response : Social and Political Challenges - Jeudi 19 et Vendredi 20 juillet (sur invitation)

Organisé par The International AIDS Society, l’Anrs et Sidaction

The pre-conference will focus on three interconnected themes: the role of critical social and political enabling factors in effective HIV responses; the relationship between the HIV response and other global health and development processes; and the challenge, in the midst of a financial crisis, of ensuring political and financial support to the HIV response, while at the same time committing to making such response more effective and efficient. Building on the “Thinking Politically about HIV” workshops held in 2011, the pre-conference will bring together social and political scientists from various disciplines to develop a research agenda for responding to the epidemic.

2) Towards en HIV Cure - Vendredi 20 et Samedi 21 juillet (sur invitation)

Organisé par l'International AIDS Society

Under the auspices of the International AIDS Society, an international working group of researchers is developing a Global Scientific Strategy Towards an HIV Cure. The strategy aims at building a global consensus defining scientific priorities for HIV cure research. The scientific strategy will be released at a 2-day symposium, co-chaired by Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, Unit Director at Pasteur Institute and IAS President-elect and Steven Deeks, Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). This meeting of up to 250 leaders from academia, industry, government and community-based groups will be held in Washington, D.C. on July 20 and 21, immediately preceding the XIX International AIDS Conference.

3) Strengthening Health Systems for an AIDS-Free Generation - Vendredi 20 et Samedi 21 juillet (inscriptions closes)

Avec le soutien de l'ICAP, l'IAS, l'OMS, l'ANRS, the World Bank, PEPFAR, et les NIH

This meeting is an important opportunity to work with experts in costing and modeling, HIV implementers and country-level policy makers as they identify the policy-relevant information required to strengthen health systems and expand HIV prevention, care, and treatment services to achieve the goal of an AIDS-free generation.

4) Confronting the Hidden Epidemic: HIV Testing Science and Implementation - Dimanche 22 juillet (Mini Room 7 – 13h30-15h30)

Organisé par l'Anrs et le Sidaction

Testing is key to curving the epidemic. Screening tools and HIV testing strategies are numerous; but how can HIV testing be more efficient? This satellite session will focus on the question how to reach out to undiagnosed HIV positive people and subsequent questions. Based on research and field experiences (including epidemiology and most at risk and/or hard to reach population's activities, this satellite session will offer powerful presentations on HIV testing and screening and will be an opportunity to exchange on this very exciting topic.
