The International AIDS Society (IAS) will host a virtual COVID-19 Conference on 10-11 July 2020, shining a spotlight on the latest science, policy and practice of the pandemic.

Los Angeles (KABC) -- Important advances in COVID-19 research, including promising data on new treatments, were announced today ahead of the virtual COVID-19 Conference, the world's first abstract-driven scientific meeting dedicated to the global pandemic.

The COVID-19 Conference will take place on 10 July (extending into July 11 in some time zones), following the 23rd International AIDS Conference, also known as AIDS 2020: Virtual. Accessible at, the COVID-19 Conference is open to all and free of charge.

"We convened this conference to tackle the many urgent questions related to COVID-19 epidemiology, prevention, treatment and care," IAS President Anton Pozniak said. "The studies presented at this gathering underwent rigorous scientific vetting and capture critical insights from the front lines in hard-hit communities worldwide."
