EATG at AIDS 2024

Back to the "Events" list

EATG is present at the 25th International AIDS Conference taking place in Munich, Germany and online from the 22nd until the 26th of July, as well as in pre-conferences and events that open during the weekend (20 – 21 July). The biennial conference organised by the International AIDS Society (IAS) is the key event for all stakeholders working in the field of HIV/AIDS around the world.

This year, the conference calls on the global HIV response to unite behind a simple principle: Put people first!


EATG is hosting a booth at the Global Village as well as activities in partnership with other organisations at The Silver Zone: A Networking Zone for Older People Living with HIV and the 5-5-5 – We Won’t Be Left Behind Zone. We are also organising a session on the inclusion of people living with HIV in non-HIV clinical trials in the frame of the Living 2024 pre-conference.

In addition, EATG members will be presenting their local and regional work in various sessions, symposia, side-events as well as at the Global Village. Last but not least, networking is key; we plan to make the best of our time there meeting bilaterally with members, partners, allies and donors.



The theme of AIDS 2024 is Put People First!

Here, communities demonstrate the application of science and good leadership.


Global Village – Networking Zone CS01

The Silver Zone is a place for older people living with HIV to re-engage with the HIV community and follow the science on HIV and ageing; to feel included and celebrated.

The Silver Zone‘s objectives are:

  • Holding space for socialisation and mobilisation by older people living with HIV, increasing their visibility and building social capital;
  • Increasing awareness of the strengths, support needs and experiences of diverse Older People Living with HIV and building capacity among stakeholders who can support ageing well; and
  • Increasing health literacy and capacity for self- and community-care among Older People Living with HIV.

The Silver Zone is co-organized by EATG and Realize.

Global Village – Networking Zone AD11

21 – 25 July  | Opening time 10:30 CET

The 5-5-5 Zone represents people left behind in the 2030 UNAIDS 95-95-95 targets. “5-5-5” represents all the efforts needed to reach and go beyond the targets to leave no one behind. “5-5-5” represents what communities want and what is needed to bridge the gap in HIV prevention, treatment and care.

The zone will provide a platform to share on gaps, barriers, and solutions to address stigma, discrimination, to advance social justice, and to improve the health outcomes of inadequately served populations. The inspiration talks, networking and mutual learning sessions, presentations and videos will cover the following themes:

  • 21 July: Mobility and HIV
  • 22 July: Sex positive approaches
  • 23 July: Well-being and quality of life
  • 24 July: Drugs and harm reduction
  • 25 July: Blind spots


The 5-5-5 Zone is co-organized by EATG, AIDS Action Europe (AAE), and Correlation-European Harm Reduction Network (C-EHRN).
