Now in its 24th year, the event continues to raise awareness of the disease, how we can prevent it, and our efforts to treat and hopefully cure it. It also reminds us of the millions who have died from HIV-related illnesses.

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is working towards a better future for people living with HIV and preventing as many new infections as possible.

Its work on HIV covers clinical research, social and anthropological research, mathematical modeling, intervention evaluation, health system analysis, cost-benefit and effectiveness analysis, work on the structural drivers which drive HIV infection and transmission, and much more.

The School is involved in several research projects and partnerships. These include:

School Director Peter Piot has had a long involvement in researching treatments and halting the spread of HIV.

He has worked on the development of potential vaccines, studying the relationship between poverty and AIDS, the disconnect between social and scientific responses, and the epidemiology of Africa.
