AIDS 2008 will provide many opportunities for the presentation of important new scientific research and for productive, structured dialogue on the major challenges facing the global response to AIDS. Conference organizers are developing a wide variety of session types that meet the needs of various participants and support collective efforts to expand delivery of HIV prevention and treatment to communities worldwide. Central to many of these sessions will be the transfer of knowledge and sharing of best practices.

In addition to the conference sessions there are a number of activities, including satellite meetings, exhibitions, the Global Village and the Cultural Programme, that are integral to delegates’ experience at the conference.

The International AIDS Society is pleased to announce that AIDS 2008 will offer Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits to those conference participants who are seeking them. This service is being provided through the European Union of Medical Specialists-European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (UEMS-EACCME). The UEMS, through an agreement with the American Medical Association (AMA), guarantees a transfer of CME credits for participants working and practicing in the United States.

The EACCME will review our conference program to determine the number of CME credits that AIDS 2008 will be eligible for. As in accordance with their statutes, the UEMS-EACCME will guarantee that all accredited CME activities at AIDS 2008 are of a high educational standard and that they are free of all commercial or individual forms of bias. The number of CME credits awarded to AIDS 2008 will be announced on the event website prior to the start of the conference.
