    The UNAIDS "three zeros" strategy urges that we take a global approach in our efforts toward zero new HIV infections, zero AIDS-related deaths and zero discrimination, and provides a clear vision for future HIV / AIDS research and policy. This one-day symposium will present view points from a range of key opinion leaders discussing their approach to improve communication and collaboration on a global scale. Updates from research leaders will tackle capacity-building for HIV prevention, care, and treatment: controlling the spread of HIV, including reducing mother to child transmission, PEPFAR and other international programs, addressing public health concerns, reducing transmission via international human trafficking, treatment as prevention, microbicides, and local and international vaccine trial updates. A case study will cover current approaches to tackling HIV in inner-city communities, and a panel of international advocacy experts will tackle the path towards zero discrimination.

    Reception to follow.
