Twinning cities to sharing lessons across the globe is an appealing strategy to support development in Africa and other less developed countries fighting HIV/AIDS. This round table encourages participation of those working at the city level in less developed countries.

The biennial International AIDS Conference is the premier gathering for those working in the field of HIV, as well as policymakers, people living with HIV and others committed to ending the epidemic. It will be a tremendous opportunity for researchers from around the world to share the latest scientific advances in the field, learn from one another's expertise, and develop strategies for advancing all facets of our collective efforts to treat and prevent HIV.

The round table will explore ways that cities from the less developed world can benefit and share their own successful approaches.

Learning Areas:
Administer health education strategies, interventions and programs
Advocacy for health and health education
Protection of the public in relation to communicable diseases including prevention or control

Learning Objectives:
Describe ways that cities from the less developed world can benefit and share their own successful approaches
