CAPS Town Hall is pleased to host speakers who will report back on current research discussed at the recent Madrid conference

HIVR4P 2018 was the third biennial HIV Research for Prevention Conference (HIVR4P 2018), the only global scientific meeting dedicated exclusively to biomedical HIV prevention research.  HIVR4P included the presentation of cutting-edge research in every field of biomedical HIV prevention – including ARV-based prevention, PrEP, microbicides, vaginal rings, vaccines, passive immunization and other emerging, long-acting technologies. In addition, dozens of invited experts provided comprehensive overviews of the latest opportunities and challenges in basic, clinical, epidemiologic and implementation science.  HIVR4P is for everyone involved in HIV prevention – researchers, advocates, program developers, funders, policy makers and communities impacted by the epidemic. The conference embraces the growing consensus that effective prevention requires a combination of approaches – and that promoting the exchange of information and experiences between each field of HIV prevention, in an environment that encourages interaction, debate and exchange, is essential to advancing all our efforts.
