The recently established Lancet Commission on Gender and Global Health is delighted to announce a new fortnightly seminar series open to all. The Series accompanies the development of the Commission, inviting Commissioners and Co-Chairs to discuss a key topic, question, or challenge that the Commission hopes to tackle. The series aims to involve a range of stakeholders and voices in its work and promote discussion and debate on gender and health.
In the eleventh event of the series, Commissioner Morna Cornell, Senior Researcher & Project Manager, IeDEA-Southern Africa, highlighted the historical neglect of men in the response to HIV, and in public health more broadly.
The International Epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA) is an international research consortium established in 2006 by the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to provide a rich resource for globally diverse HIV/AIDS data. The consortium consists of seven global regions: North America (NA-ACCORD); the Caribbean, Central and South America (CCASAnet); the Asia-Pacific; East Africa; Central Africa; West Africa; and Southern Africa. To date, the consortium houses data on over 2 million adults and 200,000 children and adolescents living with HIV. This wealth of data is an excellent resource for training new investigators. In collaboration with the Fogarty International Center (FIC), six IeDEA regions working in low- and middle-income countries have created training opportunities under the Fogarty IeDEA Mentorship Program (FIMP). Within each region, two 24-month mentee slots will be open to current and recent FIC D43 trainees, and IeDEA-affiliated investigators, for a total of 12 positions globally.
Applications Open: Monday, July 26th
Orientation Webinars: Week of August 9th

They are particularly interested in encouraging new investigators to submit to and attend CROI.
Abstract deadline is Sep 27, per slide.

The NCI invites to join us at the 16th International Conference on Malignancies in HIV/AIDS (ICMH) previously named the International Conference on Malignancies in AIDS and Other Acquired Immunodeficiencies (ICMAOI). The meeting will take place October 23-24, 2017, at the Lister Hill Center Auditorium on the campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.
This meeting is presented by the Office of HIV and AIDS Malignancy, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Recent advances in areas such as viral oncology, immunology, genetics, epidemiology, pathogenesis, early diagnosis, and clinical investigation of malignant diseases associated with HIV and other acquired immunodeficiency states will be shared at this conference. Our objective is to facilitate the exchange of information between laboratory and clinical researchers so as to accelerate the translation of basic scientific discoveries into clinical applications.

World AIDS Day is 1st December each year, an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died.
This year, during the same week the WHO launched their 2016 global HIV progress report alongside their updated guidelines on HIV self-testing and partner notification.
Several IeDEA-WHO collaboration analyses from both the 2015 and 2016 rounds of this collaboration were cited in chapter three (Country action and WHO support) of this latest WHO progress report (see pages 28-30 & 38). Many thanks to the IeDEA teams for your continued commitment and support of this evolving and expanding collaboration with WHO.
