Fast-Track Cities 2020 will take place September 7-10, 2020, in Lisbon.

Fast-Track Cities 2020 will be the second international gathering of more than 300 cities that are accelerating their responses to HIV, tuberculosis, and viral hepatitis - three diseases cited as urban health priorities in the New Urban Agenda as well as the Paris Declaration on Fast-Track Cities

The conference's aim is to highlight successes achieved across the Fast-Track Cities network, address cross-cutting challenges faced by local stakeholders, and share best practices in accelerating urban HIV responses, inclusive of co-infectious diseases and comorbid conditions.

The conference will include two half-days of pre-conference events followed by two and a half days of conference featuring plenary sessions, panel discussions, skills-building, oral abstract sessions, and e-poster sessions. The conference program will be announced in January 2020.

An estimated 1,000 delegates are projected to attend Fast-Track Cities 2020. Delegates will include elected officials, public health officials, clinical and service providers, public health experts, healthcare payors, and civil society advocates from current and prospective Fast-Track Cities. 

Fast-Track Cities 2020 is organized by the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC), in collaboration with the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and other partners. Click here for more information about the conference.
