The official pre-conference programme of the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018) is now available.

AIDS 2018 pre-conferences are independently organized meetings offering a wide range of population- and issue-specific programming within the field of global health and development. Pre-conferences will take place the weekend prior to AIDS 2018 at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre on Saturday, 21 July, and Sunday, 22 July.

The official pre-conferences offer delegates easy-access to dynamic programming as part of the AIDS 2018 registration. The current pre-conference programme, including description details, FAQ’s and detailed sign-up information can be found on the pre-conference webpage.

All registered delegates for AIDS 2018 can attend pre-conferences, but attendance is based on the capacity and sign-up requirements indicated for each meeting. Day passes are available for on-site purchase in the registration area at the RAI from 20 July for those who wish to attend only pre-conferences and not the main conference.

Please note that this is not the complete list of pre-conferences and details are subject to change. Room allocations will be available in the online conference programme in May.
