AIDS: Taking a long-term view

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is hosting an event on World Aids Day, bringing together some of the world's leading experts on the pandemic, to discuss future projections for the AIDS pandemic.

The panel speakers are as follows:

Peter Piot, Director of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and former Executive Director of UNAIDS

The session will be moderated by Heidi Larson, Director of aids2031, an independent consortium set up by UNAIDS in 2007 and consisting of partners experienced in AIDS research, policymaking and programme implementation. The consortium was charged with bringing new thinking to a pandemic that is still growing despite great investments and efforts at control. Its focus has been to look at what should be done differently now to radically reduce the numbers of infections and deaths by 2031, the year that will mark 50 years since AIDS was first reported.

The session will also feature a preview of the forthcoming aids2031 book AIDS: Taking a long-term view published by FT Science Press and available from 13 December.

When: 12.30-2.00 pm, 1 December 2010, John Snow Lecture Hall, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Keppel Street, London WC1E 7HT

There will be a question and answer session for journalists at 2.00 pm, immediately following the presentations.
