Conference delegates are invited to participate in this IAS special session, which serves as the IAS General Members’ Meeting followed by the Joep Lange Memorial Lecture. Participants receive an update from the IAS Secretariat on Conferences, HIV Programmes, Member Relations, Partnerships and Governance, and will be asked to approve the 2016 financial report. The session is followed by a reception to provide participants an opportunity to network with speakers and members.

The Joep Lange Memorial Lecture pays tribute to Joep Lange’s contribution to HIV research and treatment and his efforts to scale up access to health services and HIV treatment in resource limited settings, particularly in Asia and Africa. Joep Lange was Professor of Medicine/Global Health at the Academic Medical Center (AMC), University of Amsterdam, where he headed the Department of Global Health and the Amsterdam Institute for Global Health and Development (AIGHD). He has been involved in HIV research and treatment since 1983. In addition to various positions at the AMC, he was Chief of Clinical Research and Drug Development at the Global Programme on AIDS of the World Health Organization in Geneva from 1992 to 1995. Joep Lange was among the first who paid interest to HIV and AIDS in Asia and championed the overall effort of Thailand and the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre using the Test and Treat strategy.
