Affiliated Independent Events

Affiliated Independent Events applications are now closed

In the past Affiliated Independent Events have included meetings, forums, cultural events, galas and even performances. Affiliated Independent Events take place outside the conference venue at times that do not conflict with the conference programme. All Affiliated Independent Events must be approved by the 20th International AIDS Conference Organizers.

Criteria for selection as an Affiliated Independent Event include:
  • Affiliated Independent Events should reflect and/or support the vision and goals of the conference.
  • Affiliated Independent Events should address HIV/AIDS, Co-infections or issues faced by individuals or organizations affected by or responding to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
  • The Affiliated Independent Event programme should reflect conference policies and goals of diversity and inclusion.

As a service to Affiliated Independent Events organizers, all approved events will be published on the AIDS 2014 website and in social media.

There are no processing or sponsorship fees associated with Affiliated Independent Events, individuals requesting event affiliation, however, should be registered for AIDS 2014.

The conference organizers reserve the right to approve or reject any Affiliated Independent Event application, and may decline a request, wholly or partially that, in its opinion, is not in keeping with the character or purpose of the 20th International AIDS Conference. Conference Organizers are not responsible for the final content or the organization of any such event; the content and management of the event is the responsibility of the event organizers.
