Capturing the current sense of optimism based on recent scientific advances in HIV treatment and prevention, “Turning the Tide Together” has been selected as the theme for the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012) to be held next July in Washington, DC, according to an International AIDS Society (IAS) statement. The conference takes place every two years. IAS chose DC to host the event as a result of the United States lifting its HIV travel ban in 2010.
