To mark the 30th anniversary of the first mention of AIDS in the medical literature, Harvard University convened a major international symposium.

Several hundred global health leaders, elected officials, scientists, artists and activists gathered to reflect on what we have learned from AIDS and how to apply those lessons towards ending the epidemic.

The two-day event, hosted by the Harvard School of Public Health, started on December 1, 2011, World AIDS Day.
