HIV Prevention Roadmap

The International AIDS Conference includes hundreds of sessions, side events, marches and meetings—many focused on HIV prevention research and implementation. Our Excel sheet allows you to sort by focus; the PDF version has everything mapped out day by day. If there are events that are not on the roadmap but should be, please email us at

Global Village Zones

Research Literacy Networking Zone and HIV Prevention Marketplace
AVAC, in partnership with AfNHi, EATG, NHVMAS, TAG, and Wits RHI, is excited to host the Research Literacy Networking Zone (Booth 523 in the Global Village) at AIDS 2018. The RLNZ brings together advocates, researchers, community educators and local community members to network and discuss ongoing and planned HIV prevention, cure, treatment and implementation research.

See the schedule of events!

This year, the RLNZ is also partnering with the HIV Prevention Marketplace Zone, which is being hosted by a number seasoned HIV prevention advocates from east and Southern Africa who are Alumni of or currently participants in AVAC’s HIV Prevention Advocacy Fellows program. This Marketplace Zone will be a space where HIV prevention advocates, delegates and community members can come together to network, strategize and have informal discussions on current and future HIV prevention strategies as well as rollout of new interventions. Join us at Booth 525 in the Global Village.

In addition to features like a Help Desk (come with all your questions about prevention research!) and recharging area (for mind, body and devices), there is a robust schedule of events at the Zones. We hope that you’ll include some of the Zone sessions in your plan for the week!
