The HIV2020 Conference has been re-imagined as a series of 2-hour sessions that will take place via Zoom between the months of July and October. We will conclude HIV2020 by sharing our learnings and highlights from our virtual event on World AIDS Day 2020 in December. 


HIV2020 Online will be key population-led, inter-disciplinary, sex positive, and will reflect messages of affinity, solidarity, and intersectionality. Sessions will range from topics such as increasing funding for community-led responses to HIV to linking HIV with broader health and human rights movements. Most importantly, our event is committed to reaffirming the leading role communities play in the global HIV response.

All sessions will be made available in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Russian
