Ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic is possible through continued innovation – but unwavering global commitment across multiple stakeholders is necessary to make this a reality.


BIO Digital is taking place shortly after the United Nations General Assembly High-Level Meeting on HIV and AIDS, an opportunity for reflection on the progress made and challenges that remain towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030. This meeting will occur against the backdrop of the 40th anniversary of the publication of the first reported cases of AIDS in the U.S.


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 discussion will focus on four decades of innovation in HIV treatment and prevention as well as the critical importance of continued collaboration and investment to address global unmet needs and prioritize HIV in a post-COVID world.
