The 20th International AIDS Conference was recently held in July in Washington, DC, USA. South Africa, generally, and the Southern African HIV Clinicians Society, specifically, were well represented, with prominent presentations by senior academics and policy makers. Indeed, following the conference, I have heard several colleagues from around the country comment that 'South Africans were presenting everywhere' at the meeting. The conference theme, 'Turning the Tide Together', reflected a sense of renewed hope in the fight against the HIV epidemic. Research towards a cure for HIV disease received a great deal of attention, while discussions of antiretroviral-based prevention strategies shifted from trials for determining efficacy towards grappling with the practical issues of implementation. Although most of us could not attend the meeting, luckily much of the conference content is downloadable from the website: http://www.aids2012.org.
