AVAC's Blog: P-Values

  • AVAC was shocked to learn of the attack by the Uganda police force on the LGBTI community in Uganda during their peaceful Pride celebration. Reports that police beat and assaulted Ugandan citizens who were peacefully celebrating Pride is both troubling and completely unacceptable. This kind of attack poses public health implications. When gay people face discrimination, they are less likely to seek HIV testing, prevention and treatment services.

  • Every International AIDS Conference leaves a paper trail. If you were in Durban for the meeting that ended nearly two weeks ago, you’re probably still finding pamphlets, stickers and business cards in the corners of your luggage. And if you stayed home, you’re probably wondering how to wade through the piles of publications—maybe not paper, but plenty of links to PDF documents. Here at AVAC, we’d like to help—with a quick tour of AVAC Report 2016: Big Data, Real People—and a look at the Durban sessions that related to its core messages.

  • AVAC and partners were proud to set up the first ever Research Literacy Networking Zone (RLNZ) in the Global Village at the 21st International AIDS Conference in Durban (AIDS 2016). The Zone was designed to be a place where experts and advocates could unpack the science and explain the status of HIV prevention, treatment and cure research to anyone and everyone at the conference with a hunger to know more.

  • Throughout the week AVAC didn’t try to be comprehensive, or even objective. Our priority was to be alert, curious, sometimes critical and always committed to prevention. Observations from advocates and scientists brought exciting and sobering news from the frontlines, of which there are many, about what works and what doesn’t. Take a look at our conference diaries for what we saw, what we heard, what we learned, and how we stood up.

  • After all the presentations, talking, and advocating, success depends less on a few days in Durban and more on a reimagined AIDS response—one that brings urgency to the major gaps in treatment, prevention, funding and human rights that we’ve just explored in so much depth for a few concentrated days in Durban. So rest up. We've got lots of work to do.

  • We’ve rounded the corner here in Durban. With just one full day to go, we’re drilling down into the foundation of the global effort to defeat HIV, which rests on two fundamental imperatives: respect the data, respect the people.

  • Hello again! It’s day four of Durban week. Some folks may be starting to feel saturated with talk and facts. You may have missed lunch or a session you wanted to get to. Maybe, just maybe, you feel a little short-tempered with the conference hub-bub or the problems of the world, but a source of fresh energy coalesced on today with a galvanizing message: I bleed, I rise.

  • At its best, today's dialogue was led by and for women and centered on rights, realities and engaged discussion on the whole body, from head to toe and heart to mind. In some fascinating sessions, the vagina seized center stage and all but lost the head and heart that go with it. Today, in our update, we’ll try to put the pieces together and so, of course, the theme is: The Vagina Dialogues.

  • It’s Day 2 of the daily updates... and the conference has just barely begun with the official opening on Monday evening. Not everything is in motion, though. Long queues to undergo security screening are keeping people standing in place or, at best, shuffling along. The security lines do have an upside though… they’ve provided our theme for today: “Hurry up!”
