Track A T R A C K  A           
basic science

 

  • The main body of the 12th World AIDS Conference is composed of oral abstract presentations of track-specific peer-reviewed research.

Track C T R A C K  C             
epidemiology,
prevention and
public health

  • Because the deadline for abstract submission was several months prior to the Conference, there will be an opportunity for the presentation of abstracts highlighting important 'late breaking' developments in scientific research.
Track B T R A C K  B          
clinical science
and care
  • Non-abstract driven sessions, including track-specific symposia on certain topics, form a key part of the programme, with state-of-the-art presentations by leading authorities in the field.
  • The number and times of track symposia differ from track to track, and some are partly abstract-driven and/or involve invited speakers making presentations with a moderator.


Track D T R A C K  D        
social and
behavioural science

  • EDITOR'S NOTE: During the Conference, each of these bulleted items will be linked to summary related to the track.
  • Late breakers will be presented on Friday, July 3 (8:30-10:30) in two sessions. The "mother-to-child HIV transmission" session on Monday, June 29 (11.00-12.30: will contain 3 late breakers.
