The International AIDS Society-Industry Liaison Forum (IAS-ILF) and amfAR proudly present a satellite session aimed at offering an insight into how a gender-based approach to HIV research can translate into better science, and ultimately better clinical management of women and men living with HIV. The roles and responsibilities of both funding agencies and journal editors will be discussed. Participants will come away from this session with a better understanding and justification for a paradigm shift in the way research is currently conducted.
