The forum is organized by the International AIDS Society (IAS) and the IAS 2019 Community Engagement Board (CEB), with the support of the Local CEB.

The IAS 2019 Community Forum is an opportunity for communities to focus on the needs of their constituencies in the context of HIV research. These communities include people living with HIV, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers, transgender people, indigenous groups and other stakeholders and HIV activists.

Participants from different regions of the world will share their experiences on HIV prevention and treatment and the challenges and successes in working with the medical and scientific community. A report of the event will be posted on this webpage.

English/Spanish interpretation will be provided.
