Theme: New challenges, Big Ideas

New technologies present opportunities but their implementation brings new challenges.

  • How can HIV organisations tackle the changing HIV prevention and treatment landscape?
  • How are we gearing up for new service models in key areas like HIV testing and PrEP?
  • What work is being done to reach the 2020 targets and how should we measure ourselves against those targets?
  • Just what are the big ideas to re-energise our work and create social change delivering real benefits in our core communities?

Abstract submissions have now closed.

About the conference

This biennial conference has been hosted by AFAO for over two decades and continues to be the key event in the HIV community sector calendar.

It offers a great opportunity for staff and volunteers of the AIDS councils, PLHIV organisations and public sector to discuss the current challenges facing the HIV sector in 2016 and beyond, and to devise and present innovative approaches in response to these challenges.

The conference is also a unique opportunity meet other workers from around the country who are engaged in similar work and to build supportive and productive networks.
