AIDS Project Los Angeles, in collaboration with a range of community partners, held its quarterly HIV Matters town hall forum in November 2012. The event featured an interactive presentation from leading HIV research experts from UCLA and City of Hope. This quarter's forum focused exclusively on HIV cure research, an exciting and dynamic field. Timothy Brown, the “Berlin Patient,” also attended and engaged in the panel discussion. Brown is the only known person worldwide to have been effectively cured of HIV.
In April, HIV/AIDS advocates met in Baltimore for the HIV Research Catalyst Forum, a unique conference focusing on community advocacy in HIV treatment and prevention research.
