Please join the Office of AIDS Research (OAR) for the NIH World AIDS Day 2021 Virtual Event: The Role of Research in the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, Wednesday, December 1, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m ET.

The year 2021 marked 40 years since the first reports of the syndrome of diseases later named AIDS. Since that time, groundbreaking research has helped turn a once-fatal disease, with effective treatment, into a manageable chronic condition. The National HIV/AIDS Strategy for 2022–2025 will highlight the important role of research in continued progress toward ending the HIV pandemic and improving the health of people living with or significantly affected by HIV. These efforts will require robust research collaboration among private, public, and community entities to prevent new HIV infections, accelerate new therapies, and achieve HIV cure. The World AIDS Day event will feature compelling discussions about the next chapter of high-impact HIV research, the types of multisectoral and interdisciplinary partnerships necessary for success, and the integral role of community stakeholders. Join a distinguished group of participants for a live discussion on these topics, including a public question and answer (Q&A) session, as we help mark the global World AIDS Day observance in this momentous year. This event will be broadcast on NIH VideoCast and is open to the public.
