MeSH Consortium hosts a Satellite Symposium at AIDS 2020!

July 4, 2020

We are excited to be hosting a Satellite Symposium at the very first virtual AIDS conference on Monday 6th July 2020.

Tracking and accelerating HIV incidence reduction is the most pressing concern for the global HIV community. If we are to achieve epidemic control, the ease with which we attain and understand epidemiological estimates must improve. Our session is targeted towards delegates interested in understanding where we are at and where we are going in achieving precision in our understanding of HIV epidemiology to inform programming.

This year, our session is made up of two parts:

1) Our first session is 40-minutes of pre-recorded content which will provide an introduction to the Measurement & Surveillance of HIV Epidemics (MeSH) and HIV Modelling consortia, including examples of some recent work on HIV & COVID-19. There will also be a presentation, focusing on Malawi, on how new technologies may be utilised in monitoring and measurement activities. This will be available On-Demand on the conference site.

2) The 60 minute live session consists of two presentations from leading experts, addressing critical questions and new methods for attaining robust, sustainable HIV-epidemiology estimates in southern Africa. These will be followed by a panel discussion involving questions from the viewers.

Please join us at 07.30 (PDT), 15.30 (BST) 16.30 (CAT) on Monday 6th July. You will have another option to watch the session later in the day when it is replayed at 16.00 (PDT). Both the live session and the On-Demand content will be available on the AIDS 2020 website.
