International AIDS Conference Reminder: CONTRIBUTE CONTENT!

MSMGF would like to remind and encourage all of our stakeholders and community members to submit content for the 2016 International AIDS conference in Durban, South Africa on July 18-22. It is crucially important to contribute so your opinions and needs are represented and addressed! You are encouraged to submit an abstract and share your research, submit a workshop that will promote knowledge transfer, skills development and collaborative learning, and/or submit an activity for the Global Village and Youth Programme.

Be part of the world’s premier gathering where science, leadership and community meet for advancing all facets of collective efforts to treat and prevent HIV!

Submissions are open until 4 February 2016.

ALSO, remember to apply for scholarships as well. This year the International AIDS Society (IAS) is giving out twice as many scholarships as in previous years (approximately 1000). The due date for scholarships is February 12th.

The MSMGF preconference registration will also be available at in February. The MSMGF preconference is on July 16th, 2 days before the main conference begins. It is free to attend once you are registered for the main conference and the preconference.

Please remind your friends, colleagues and fellow activists to submit content now so gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men, transgender people and other key populations are adequately represented at the conference.

Frequently asked questions about scholarships, volunteering and abstract submissions are answered here.

We hope to see you in Durban!

Regards and Good Luck,
