On the role of a sustained community response to HIV: Measuring promises against reality
At the recent IAPAC conference in May 2018, where the conference theme was mirrored in the title of the conference “Controlling the HIV Epidemic”, the session topics covered a range of issues, including:
Setting the metrics for success – where the panel discussion focused upon the question of “are we measuring what matters”?
Facilitating HIV epidemic control – where innovative program models, new therapeutic developments, and policy discussions about comprehension prevention and differentiated care where put forward.
Leaving no one behind – where the reoccurring theme of stigma and discrimination was interrogated and was followed by regional, national and subnational examples of how progress towards HIV epidemic control is being achieved around the world.
