Track C: Epidemiology and Prevention Science


Description: This track will focus on HIV and AIDS prevention research and issues related to the design, implementation and evaluation of prevention programs to reach the SDG. It will include examination of Research, methodological and programmatic advances in the continuum of prevention, particularly best practices in HIV prevention for vulnerable populations in resource-limited settings. Strategies to put HIV prevention research into practice, efforts to promote preparedness for bio-medical prevention technologies, and research on new prevention approaches including microbicides, vaccines, pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis, circumcision and other methods will be presented. This Track will also address co-morbidities (Hepatitis, Tuberculosis, and STI’s, communicable end emerging diseases) and emerging.
