Fireside Chat with Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Julie Gerberding: Collaboration and Investment to Address Global Unmet Needs and Prioritize HIV Research
This year, BIO Digital will take place right after a seminal moment in time for the global HIV community — the United Nations General Assembly High-level Meeting on HIV and AIDS — during which, key stakeholders will reflect on the progress made and challenges that remain towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030. This meeting will occur as the world marks the 40th anniversary of the publication of the first reported cases of AIDS in the U.S. in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR.)
BIO will host a fireside chat between two pioneering leaders, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of NIAID at the NIH, and Dr. Julie Gerberding, Executive Vice President and Chief Patient Officer for Merck. The session will focus on four decades of innovation in HIV treatment and prevention as well as explore the critical importance of continued collaboration and investment to address global unmet needs and prioritize HIV in a post-COVID world. Ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic is possible through continued innovation but unwavering global commitment across multiple stakeholders is necessary to make this a reality.
