AIDS 2008: International AIDS Society

International AIDS Society (IAS):

According to its website, the IAS is “the world’s leading independent association of HIV/AIDS professionals.”  It’s the group behind the International AIDS Conference.

The IAS is the custodian of the International AIDS Conference, the largest regular conference on any health or development issue. These prestigious conferences provide a unique forum for the interaction of science, community and leadership, and strengthen an evidence-based policy and programmatic response to the epidemic. The conferences also provide an opportunity to intensify political and financial commitments to AIDS, and include the largest international conference scholarship programme in HIV/AIDS.

The IAS also organizes the IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention. This conference focuses on the biomedical aspects of HIV/AIDS. It brings together individuals and organizations from around the world to address current issues in HIV basic, clinical and prevention science.  (quoted from here)
