Voices from International AIDS Conference Voices from International AIDS Conference Community Voices from the International AIDS Conference

Hi James M,


The XVII International AIDS Conference (IAC) kicks off this weekend in Mexico City, and CHAMP has it covered!


We’ve launched – Community voices from the International AIDS Conference, an independent community resource for the IAC. From now through the end of the conference, will be a home for community bloggers, journalists and activists reporting from and about the plenaries, workshops, exhibits, satellite/affiliated events, affinity sessions, and activist doings at the conference.


When the conference begins, we’ll also bring you video and audio recordings of key events, interviews, press conferences, marches, and other community actions.
