Abstract

The 2016 edition of the International AIDS Society (IAS) Towards an HIV cure symposium was held in Africa for the first time, bringing together over 300 participants in Durban on 16–17 July 2016 to present and discuss the latest science in HIV cure and remission research. The symposium, chaired by Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, Steven Deeks and Sharon Lewin, included presentations by invited speakers, roundtable discussion and oral and poster abstracts. As the field of HIV cure and remission research grows and expands, the symposium covered virology, immunology, clinical studies and social sciences research, retaining its characteristic cross-disciplinary dialogue.
