To galvanize the scientific response, build global solidarity and enhance human dignity for all those living with and affected by HIV.


A world in which HIV no longer presents a threat to public health and individual well-being.


We convene leading minds to accelerate scientific discovery. We advocate for evidence-based and stigma-free policies. We educate change makers to ensure the global HIV response follows the science and puts people first.

Value proposition

The IAS unites the global HIV response because progress happens when science, policy and activism come together.

Put people first.

Build bridges & collaborate.

Be evidence-based & open-minded.
