Recently, Mauricio Iafolla, Medical Director of the HIV Medicine Recycling and the AIDS Treatment Access Program (ATAP) for AID FOR AIDS, had the opportunity to travel to Miami for the 8th International Conference on HIV Treatment and Prevention Adherence.

The conference, which ran from June 2-4, consisted of an international forum to discuss and present new scientific advancements in the treatment of HIV as well as new developments in biomedical research on prevention and adherence. This conference provided the chance not only to network and interact with leaders in the field of HIV research and treatment; it also presented a unique opportunity to bring further visibility to the mission of AID FOR AIDS by getting us on the radar of conference participants hailing from all around the world.

Mauricio, who led the outreach efforts to represent our organization in front of all conference participants, was very pleased with the outcome upon his return to our headquarters in New York. “I was very happy to have had the opportunity to show doctors, nurses, researchers, and other health providers the way that two of our biggest programs work: HIV Medicine Recycling and Access to Treatment. This conference was the perfect opportunity to promote these programs and spread our message of empowerment to a larger international audience outside of New York.”

He adds that AID FOR AIDS truly stood out among other organizations present during the conference and received the most amount of praise from participants due to our eye-catching branding as well as our clear and powerful mission. The presence of AID FOR AIDS at this international conference represents just one of the ways we continue to expand the organization’s reach across the globe.
