The 21st International AIDS Conference in Durban (AIDS-2016) will be hosting the stand of the VI Eastern Europe and Central Asia AIDS Conference (EECAAC-2018) from July 18 to July 22. EECAAC-2018 will take place in April 2018 with the support of the Russian government in collaboration with UNAIDS.
The forthcoming Conference plans to gather more than 3000 participants from around the world. Among them are the world’s leading scientists, policy makers, politicians as well as the representatives of non-governmental organizations and civil society. EECAAC-2018 aims to unite the efforts of the speakers and delegates to discuss the next steps needed to end the AIDS epidemic in Eastern Europe and Central Asia by 2030.
“The Conference has been held in Moscow for the past 10 years. It has become a good tradition to discuss how to consolidate the potential of Eastern Europe and Central Asia countries in response to HIV, which remains an acute challenge for this region, – says Anna Popova, Head of the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing, Chief State Sanitary Official of the Russian Federation. – The Conference Programme is evidence-based and embraces up-to-date fundamental and applied scientific accomplishments in prevention, epidemiology and treatment of HIV. Best regional practices and efficient approaches to respond to the epidemic are presented. The event aims to ensure experience exchange among the countries”.
EECAAC-2018 stand is located in the Global Village at the Community Dialogue Space. Special limited edition flyers will be available at the stand – they serve as invitations to EECAAC-2018 entitling their bearers to a free registration for the event in Moscow in 2018.
