Applications to Volunteer at AIDS 2012 Available April 1st

The success of AIDS 2012 will depend heavily on the support of 1,500 to 2,000 volunteers who will fill a range of crucial positions during the conference, including helping coordinate program activities, greeting and registering delegates, staffing various offices and helping in the Global Village.

Volunteering at AIDS 2012 is a great way to gain international experience and support the world’s largest international meeting on AIDS. In addition, volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in the conference, as they are given unlimited access to all conference sessions outside their shifts.

The online volunteer application will be available on the AIDS 2012 website as of April 1st. Applicants must be 18 (as of July 22, 2012) or older. Volunteers who apply in April will be notified of their acceptance before the last minute registration fee applies (on May 3, 2012). For more information, visit: or contact the AIDS 2012 secretariat at
