Every minute a young woman is newly infected by HIV and globally, young women aged 15-24 account for 22 per cent of all infections. Next week in Melbourne, the 20th International AIDS Conference (AIDS2014) is taking place (20 to 25 July). AIDS2014 offers a critical forum for presenting new research, promoting dialogue and future collaborations and developing strategies to advance the global response to HIV. With over 14,000 delegates, including around 1,000 media representatives, the conference is the premier gathering for people working in the field of HIV. YWCA Australia is thrilled to be welcoming a sizeable World YWCA delegation for the conference.
