The International AIDS Conference is the largest conference on any global health or development issue in the world. It continues to provide a unique forum for the intersection of science, advocacy, and human rights. The 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS2018) will be hosted in Amsterdam, Netherlands, 23-27 July 2018.

NSWP and our members are promoting meaningful participation and visibility of sex workers at AIDS2018. NSWP encourages sex worker-led organisations to get involved with the range of events at AIDS2018. This document covers the ways sex workers can get involved.
