International Aids Conference
AIDS 2022, the 24th International AIDS Conference, called on the world to come together to re-engage and follow the science. It sought to define future research agendas, shift the latest evidence to action, and chart a new consensus on overcoming the HIV epidemic as a threat to public health and individual well-being.
Four abstracts were submitted to the conference: 1) The impact of a structured physical activity program on health outcomes amongst children and adolescents living with HIV in South India 2) Learn for life: Enhancing lives of Children living with HIV 3) HIV- Positive Widow headed household: A peer-led program in Southern India 4) Empowering HIV-positive adolescents with education, ‘Of the youth, by the youth, for the youth’: a peer-led model for building resilience among youth living with HIV during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We were very excited to have three of our abstracts selected to be presented at the conference in Montreal, Canada on July 28th, 2022. We saw this as an opportunity that would build leaders and role models, it is amazing to see HIV- positive students standing out and using their voices to spread the message of hope.
