AIDS 2010

Cheryl Overs, from Monash University Medical School, has joined the Community Programming Committee (CPC) for the International Aids Conference on behalf of the Paulo Longo Research Initiative. The conference will be held in Vienna next year. She attended the first planning meeting of the committee in Vienna in May which was held in conjunction with the Joint Programming Committee. This first meeting was for committees to develop a clear understanding of the conference structure, the process for building the conference programme and roles and responsibilities of committees. Cheryl will co-chair the Global Village Working Group with Anastasia Kamlyk of UNAIDS.  

Later in the year the PLRI will develop a proposal for a session on sex work research at the conference and we look forward to your suggestions about that. Meanwhile information about the conference can be obtained at www.aids2010.org.
