Black AIDS Institute Joins Kaiser Family Foundation Post 2010 International AIDS Conference Update

August 2, 2010

Black AIDS Institute Joins Kaiser Family Foundation Post 2010 International AIDS Conference Update The Kaiser Family Foundation and the Center for Strategic and International Studies will hold an Aug. 5 forum examining the major policy, research and other developments arising from the 2010 International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2010) in Vienna. Black AIDS Institute Founder and CEO Phill Wilson will participate in the discussion that will examine the implications of a leveling of donor nation support for global AIDS relief efforts during last year's economic crises and the scientific progress reported on HIV treatment and prevention, including promising results from a microbicide clinical trial, potentially providing an important new HIV prevention tool for women. The panel will provide a look ahead to the 2012 conference, to be held in Washington, DC, and also examine the new U.S. strategy for combating HIV domestically.
