World AIDS Conference: Rights Here and Now.

(07/12/2010) From the 18th to the 23rd International World AIDS Conference held by the International AIDS Society (IAS). More than 25,000 participants from over a hundred countries around the world are expected. In addition to future strategies against the spread of the HIV virus, the protection and human rights of people affected by HIV will be discussed.

The IAS, based in Geneva, is headed by Professor Julio S.G. Montaner from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada is the largest independent association of experts on the immune disease AIDS. Their goal is to build a global movement of people who work together to stop the spread of HIV by spreading and using scientific knowledge and treatments.

Immune disease AIDS (from Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) has been viewed as an independent disease since around 1980. Around 33 million people around the world are said to have fallen ill and around 5500 people die every day.

In the western industrialized countries, those affected can now receive good medical care, but in poorer countries the disease is spreading and treatments are very expensive and often not feasible. The motto of the conference is also directed against discriminatory and stigmatizing measures against HIV patients. According to the United Nations, people with HIV are hindered or prevented from entering the country in 57 countries around the world. The USA had only lifted a 22-year entry ban for people infected with HIV earlier this year. This will enable them to host the 19th World AIDS Conference next year.

In addition to the social aspects, recent research results, such as the discovery of the two antibodies VRC01 and VRC02, which interfere with the HIV virus, are discussed. At the beginning of the week, American researchers published the sensational results in two studies in the journal Science of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), which is also one of the supporters of the congress.

Other topics that will surely also interest the approximately 2,000 media representatives who are arriving include the important topic "Children and AIDS" and the Central Asia / Eastern Europe region, in which around one and a half million people are said to be infected with AIDS. (tf)
