Invitation to STI & HIV 2019 World Congress

Conference welcome message from

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are delighted to invite you to attend the STI & HIV 2019 World Congress to be held July 14 – 17, 2019, at the Vancouver Convention Centre East Building, in Vancouver, Canada.

This Congress represents the joint meeting of the International Society for Sexually Transmitted Diseases Research (ISSTDR) and the International Union Against Sexually Transmitted Infections (IUSTI).  This biennial meeting is one of the largest international meetings on sexually transmitted infections, drawing delegates from around the world.

Under the theme of ‘The Evolving Landscape of STI and HIV Elimination’, this meeting will provide an excellent opportunity for the world’s most prominent researchers and health care professionals to come together in the shared goal of improving global public health in the field of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. The meeting will provide Congress attendees the opportunity to network with experts, present their research findings to an international audience, hear the latest scientific developments from world leaders in the STI/HIV field, and contribute to discussions that will shape future health policies and patient care around the world.

We are also pleased to announce that the STI & HIV 2019 World Congress will take place in one of the most stunning cities in the world, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Vancouver is a safe, modern, multicultural city with a vibrant local arts and culture scene and abundant opportunities for outdoor adventures amongst a setting of incomparable natural beauty. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Vancouver in July 2019 and providing you with an exceptional scientific and cultural experience!

Caroline E. Cameron, Chair
International Society for Sexually Transmitted Diseases Research, President

Charlotte A. Gaydos, Co-Chair
International Union Against Sexually Transmitted Infections, President
