Becoming A Conference Donor

As a not for profit, non-governmental organization, the International AIDS Society (IAS) relies heavily on contributions from a range of sources to fund the IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention.

Donations from our supporters make a crucial difference to our work, and each conference and outcomes are reliant on our funding partnerships. Feedback from formal debriefing sessions organized by the IAS with donors who attended the conference, indicates that supporters have very positive experiences of the event. Donors highlight the following benefits:
  • Donor support and profiles are visible to a large, high-profile worldwide audience. Conference delegates include clinicians and other health workers; medical, biomedical and social science researchers; social and community workers; government and non-governmental agencies at all levels from local to international; the pharmaceutical industry and other businesses; educators; the media; policy makers and leaders; and community organizations.
  • Forums are arranged at the conference, during which donors can discuss issues with other HIV and AIDS funders, government representatives, conference delegates, and their own grantees.
  • The IAS assists in organizing satellite meetings at the conference venue for donors and provides help with their logistical arrangements.
The IAS would be delighted to meet with governments, charitable foundations, companies, and others, who share our commitment to prevent, control and treat the HIV epidemic in order to discuss ways in which support could be used. Funding can be directed to specific conference areas and programmes, or invested in the general costs of the conference. Please contact for more information.
