Share your commitment to re-engage the HIV response

The theme of AIDS 2022, the 24th International AIDS Conference, is re-engage and follow the science.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impeded global public health efforts, including those related to HIV. We cannot allow years of progress to be undone or even delayed. We must re-engage the world in a concerted HIV response that follows the science – lives depend on it. AIDS 2022 will be a pivotal moment to galvanize the scientific, policy and activist communities to push the response forward.

At AIDS 2022, we will have a space where delegates, community members and members of the public can view and share stories of why the world needs to re-engage the HIV response and follow the science.

We invite you to join thousands of other people from around the world in participating in our AIDS 2022 social campaign (#AIDS2022Engage) by sharing a short video of what re-engagement means to you.
