More than 40 years since AIDS was first reported, we live in a world where HIV is the forgotten epidemic. Concerned by the lack of interest and the slowing pace of progress in the HIV response, IAS – the International AIDS Society – is calling on the world to re-engage and follow the science. The AIDS 2022 opening panel discussion explores sources and evolution of the mounting apathy, and why and how the world must re-engage and follow the science towards our shared goal to overcome the HIV epidemic as a threat to public health and individual well-being.
