Abstract

At this point in the HIV epidemic the 13th International AIDS Impact Conference took place in Cape Town, South Africa, in November 2017. The theme for the meeting was "What will it really take to end the epidemic?" It comprised 66 sessions over three days and welcomed 571 delegates from 56 countries, nearly half of whom benefited from some form of financial support to attend. Participants represented academia, government, non-governmental organisations, and communities and came together to share lessons, analyse and debate behavioural and psychosocial aspects of ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
