2011 HIV/AIDS Mini-Summit Keynote Address by Dr. Anthony S. Fauci


The Forum for Collaborative HIV Research hosted a special ceremony on September 22, 2011 in Washington in conjunction with a Mini-HIV/AIDS Summit on Capitol Hill. Marking the 30th Anniversary of the beginning of the HIV/AIDS crisis, this half-day symposium brought together many of the nation’s scientists, clinicians, public health leaders and advocates to (1) highlight progress in the ‘world’ of science and (2) focus on the challenges of bringing that progress to fruition in the ‘world’ of clinical practice.

Following the Mini-Summit, the Forum presented Dr. Anthony Fauci (Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) with the 2nd Annual C. Everett Koop HIV/AIDS Public Health Leadership Award for his seminal contributions to the understanding of the AIDS virus and the development of highly effective strategies for the therapy of people with this serious disease.
