Biggest group from New Zealand to travel to Melbourne

AIDS Conference 2014
The International AIDS Society holds what is referred to as The World AIDS Conference every two years. In 2012 it was in Washington DC, and this year it comes downunder to Melbourne.

“This is a golden opportunity for as many to go as is possible”, says Bruce Kilmister CEO of Body Positive. The NZAF are sending a large delegation of about 12 people, and Positive Women will also be represented at the conference along with INA who will also attend the Indigenous Peoples conference in Sydney then travel down to Melbourne.

Body Positive will have a strong delegation of 8 Board and staff members attending. Most travel and accommodation has been sourced privately and most have achieved a scholarship or volunteer role to enable access to this very valuable conference.
