The Australian Society for HIV Medicine and the International AIDS Society were the hosts of the 4th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention.More than 5,000 delegates from 133 countries came together for the four-day conference to examine the latest developments in HIV biology, pathogenesis, treatment and prevention science.Emphasising the need to scale-up TB/HIV programmes Michel Sidibe, UNAIDS Deputy Executive Director of Programmes, UNAIDS said, "Urgent investment in TB research and programmes is needed if we are to avoid TB, and especially drug resistant TB, undoing all the advances we have gained through better AIDS treatment and care. All of our drugs, diagnostics and vaccines date from the last century or even the century before that."
