World AIDS Day 2019
On December 2, 2019, people from across NIH and the community gathered at Lipsett Amphitheater on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, for the OAR-sponsored World AIDS Day Symposium Community and NIH: In Partnership to End the HIV Epidemic. Speakers representing many of the communities touched by HIV discussed how they—and the NIH—can work together to eradicate the disease.
