This year’s annual International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa included some exciting new features, including TB2016, a new two-day conference immediately preceding AIDS2016 to focus new attention on the tuberculosis (TB) epidemic. Aeras was pleased to be a sponsor of this conference in order to draw global attention to this deadly co-epidemic.

​Join us at the Union Conference in Liverpool in October. Aeras is leading or participating in a number of meetings and sessions at the conference.

Billed as the largest yearly TB event in China, the 2016 National Conference on Tuberculosis, held in Nanchang, attracted more than 2000 participants, representing 411 institutions, organizations and companies from China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan; including 327 hospitals and 90 provincial CDC and TB control centers. The conference featured 10 satellite sessions on TB prevention and control, as well as several plenary sessions on diagnosis, treatment, basic science, and imaging.

Aeras participated in several meetings focusing on the threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) last week as part of the United Nations General Assembly, including the high-level meetings with Ministers of Health, held September 21 in New York.

Aeras Africa, located in Cape Town, South Africa, marked this year’s Mandela Day by partnering with Brooklyn Chest Hospital (BCH) to create a garden for patients and visitors.
