The International AIDS Conference gathers those working in the field of HIV, as well as policy makers, persons living with HIV and other individuals committed to ending the pandemic. The AIDS 2012 programme will present new scientific knowledge and will offer opportunities for dialogue on the major issues facing the global response to HIV.
Sessions will focus on the latest issues in HIV science, policy and practice and will also seek to share key research findings, lessons learned, best practices, as well as identify gaps in knowledge. The conference will feature abstract-driven sessions, a daily plenary session, a variety of symposia sessions, professional development workshops, and independently organised satellite meetings.

HIV Responses in the Context of Migration
This session will highlight different responses to migration-related HIV challenges in four regions:
sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe as well as North America and Western Europe. The presenters
will review how government agencies, civil society and other partners have addressed the specific HIV
vulnerabilities of different types of migrants, including irregular cross-border migrants, temporary migrant
workers, immigrants and victims of trafficking. The session will identify the key components that make
responses successful and effective for the benefit of migrants and host communities alike.
