HIV Communication Saves Lives: CCP at AIDS 2012

AIDS 2012

“We stand at a unique time in the history of the AIDS epidemic.”

This declaration by the organizers of the 19th International AIDS Conference asserts that new advances in science coupled with changes in social norms are creating an environment where what was once unthinkable is now possible: an end to the AIDS epidemic.

CCP’s groundbreaking research reflects this spirit of optimism. CCP staff will present nine abstracts at the 19th International AIDS Conference on the contribution of strategic communication to the fight against AIDS.
