Join us at IAS 2019

The 10th IAS Conference on HIV Science – known as IAS 2019 – will take place on 21-24 July 2019 in Mexico City, Mexico.

The IAS Conference on HIV Science is the world’s most influential meeting on HIV research and its applications. This biennial conference presents the critical advances in basic, clinical and operational research that moves science into policy and practice. Through its open and inclusive programme development, the meeting sets the gold standard of HIV research featuring highly diverse and cutting-edge studies.

Conference objectives

We, the members of the Scientific Programme Committee of the 10th IAS Conference on HIV Science, are committed to advancing the HIV response through five core objectives.

1Accelerate basic science to promote discovery and shape the advancement and application of innovative technologies across the HIV prevention, care and treatment cascade, and remission and cure research

2Advance core components of implementation science research that address the scale-up and challenges of the current epidemic


3Fast-track consolidated responses on HIV co-infections (notably TB, and viral hepatitis) and on emerging co-morbidities and other non-communicable diseases

4 Strengthen HIV prevention research (biomedical, behavioural and structural prevention) including treatment and
vaccines

5Address HIV vulnerability and determinants of disease progression notably among key and marginalized populations, including stigma and discrimination

While examining cutting-edge research across all tracks is critical, we know that – particularly in Latin America – political will must be galvanized to address the structural and social barriers that continue to impede the response. In addition to showcasing and promoting the latest science, we commit to leveraging the conference platform to engage with political leaders and openly call for increased political support, particularly securing financial and human resources for HIV research and care.

This strengthening of political commitment and addressing entrenched structural and social barriers will be key to accelerating scientific research. It is our hope that the IAS2019 Mexico City conference will create a strong precedent from which the next generation of young investigators, frontline healthcare workers and activists can build a more dynamic, inclusive and sustainable multi-sectoral response to the epidemic.
