The 8th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention (IAS 2015) will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from 19 to 22 July 2015. The event is organized by the International AIDS Society (IAS), in partnership with the University of British Columbia (UBC) Division of AIDS, based at St. Paul’s Hospital, Providence Health Care. The Division was created in 2007 to bring together, enhance and expand the research, training, service delivery and administration that have evolved over the last two decades within the UBC Department of Medicine and Providence Health Care.
The overall goal of the Fogarty HIV Research Training Program is to strengthen the human capacity to contribute to the ability of institutions in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) to conduct HIV-related research on the evolving HIV-related epidemics in their country and to compete independently for research funding. (See The World Bank Country and Lending Groups to identify countries with low- or middle-income economies.)

The Global Infectious Disease (GID) program addresses research training needs related to infectious diseases that are predominantly endemic in or impact upon people living in developing countries. The training programs include a variety of research training options to match the needs of the developing country institution. The ultimate goal is to build a critical mass of researchers and support staff to conduct independent infectious disease research in developing country institutions.

The USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) is pleased to announce the next Webinar in our series hosted by the Community of Practice on Scale-up and Gender, Policy and Measurement (GPM). Ashley Jackson from Population Services International (PSI) will lead the presentation. The world's most populous French-speaking country, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), has one of the world's lowest rates of modern contraceptive use: eight percent among all women of reproductive age. In the DRC, the majority of men and women say male partners are the primary decision makers when it comes to women's health (DHS, 2014). In collaboration with IntraHealth International, PSI and its network member in DRC, the Association de Sante Familiale (ASF), integrated gender analysis into marketing research for a campaign to constructively engage men in family planning. Learn how the pairing of marketing and gender analysis perspectives yielded audience insights that would not have emerged from either approach alone.
