Mon 24th July – Pre-Congress Symposium

Using Embedded Program Science to Improve Equity, Optimize Service Coverage and Achieve Population-Level Impact within HIV and STI Prevention and Care Programs

  • The global COVID-19 pandemic, new and re-emerging STI epidemics, and shrinking envelopes for public health research and programming globally, highlight the importance of transdisciplinary efforts across academia, government, communities, funding agencies, and program implementors to establish improved approaches for improving equity in health outcomes and ensuring that health systems and programs have population-level impact and “leave no one behind”. This symposium will engage global experts and key stakeholders to address the question, why is now the time for a paradigm shift in the way we do global public health?

Mon 24th July – Opening Session
