SOURCE:  AIDS 2018 via 

Goedemorgen, and welcome to the first official day of the 22nd International AIDS Conference(AIDS 2018). Today more than 15,000 researchers, activists and policy makers from more than 160 countries gather here in Amsterdam for the opening day of AIDS 2018—at the intersection of science, advocacy and human rights.

This year’s International AIDS Conference is providing more scholarships than any other AIDS conference, including the highest number of scholarships for young people and the largest dedicated youth space ever in the Global Village.

Over the course of the week, this Daily Delegate email will arrive in your inbox every morning with a preview of activities for the day ahead, highlights from the day before and snapshots of activities from around the conference.
