Words of welcome from the co-chairs

Dear Colleagues,

It is with a great pleasure that we invite you to take part in the 8th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention (IAS 2015), on 19-22 July 2015 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This biennial forum is the largest open scientific conference on HIV/AIDS related issues and is expected to gather some 6,000 delegates from across the globe.

IAS 2015 will be a unique opportunity for all those involved in the global response to HIV, including scientists, clinicians, public health experts, community leaders, and media professionals, to meet and examine the latest scientific developments in HIV-related research, and explore how such developments can be realistically applied in implementation programmes.
