Good morning, and congratulations! You’ve made it through several days of AIDS 2018, the world’s largest global gathering on HIV and AIDS. We hope you are feeling invigorated by what you’ve seen and heard so far, because the conference day ahead is truly extraordinary. Here are just a few of the highlights for Thursday at AIDS 2018:

Today’s plenary session, Breaking barriers and building bridges between our responses toward universal health, challenges us to consider the connections between HIV and other pressing global health issues.

On the programme: Emily Hyle (US) on “Understanding the intersecting syndemics of communicable and non-communicable diseases”, Peter Piot (UK) on “Global health and the HIV response”, and David Malebranche (US) on “Making the treatment cascade work in vulnerable and key populations”. Also on the plenary programme today: a call to action from Yana Paniflova (Ukraine) of the advocacy organization Teenergizer.
