Come and meet us in Durban

The International AIDS Conference is held this year in Durban and will address the theme Access Equity Rights Now, where science, leadership and community meet for advancing all facets of the collective efforts to treat and prevent HIV.

This year the School is holding a number of events and will have a booth to showcase all the study opportunities available in London or by distance learning. Come and talk to us at booth 329.

There will also be a number of activities from the School and partners which we would like to invite you to attend:

Reception – London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

Professor Peter Piot, Director of the School will be hosting the event which is open to all alumni, students, staff and friends of the School. The event will be held on Monday 18 July 2016 at Southern Sun Elangeni & Maharani from 5pm to 7:30pm. It is a great way to meet up with old classmates, professors and friends from your time at the School as well as meet new people in your field. Sign up now. Guests welcome.
