“We are honored to partner with the IAS Local Planning Group to ensure that the voices of the community–especially those from Oakland and San Francisco–are at the table during this historic conference. The COVID-19 crisis has challenged many of our conferences to go virtual to continue their mission of sharing the science, data and community best practices associated with ending the HIV epidemic. Gilead Sciences is proud to support the IAS Local Planning Group which continues to provide critical planning support and engagement even in the reality of the transition to a virtual conference.”

-Douglas Brooks, Executive Director, Public Affairs




“As the first oil and gas company to implement a global HIV/AIDS policy, we have long believed that healthy communities are critical to sustainable economic growth.

We are committed to supporting local initiatives that accelerate progress in health equity and security.”
