More than 37 million people live with HIV globally. Only 15 million have access to treatment. There were 2 million new infections in 2014 alone. HIV is one of the biggest threats facing current and future generations with young women aged 15-24 years disproportionately affected.

Commemorating World AIDS Day, the latest NRF Science for Society lecture, entitled “Getting to Zero”, will explore the origins and evolution of HIV; why prevention and vaccine research is critical; and why there is an urgent need for safe and effective technology that women can use to reduce their risk of infection. Come and join the discussion.
