An international AIDS Conference was held in Melbourne Australia July 20 to 25, 2014. The Best Practices Policy Project regularly communicated with our colleagues in Australia and other networks to ensure that communities in the US had the most up-to-date information about activities at the IAC. In 2014 the Best Practices Policy Project has publicized opportunities to apply to attend and present at the conference and has made a firm commitment to be part of the Sex Worker Networking Zone in the Global Village with our colleagues at Scarlet Alliance and via our booth US Sex Workers United! in partnership with the Desiree Alliance.

The International AIDS Conference is a very large event and can be daunting. Sex workers have organized protests and actions about specific issues at the conference over the years and have demanded change from the conference itself. If issues emerge that you want to talk about at the IAC or if something concerns you as a community organizer for the rights of sex workers and people in the sex trade then email BPPP (bestpracticespolicyproject @ at any time in the run up to the conference and we will do our best to connect you and to hear what you have to say.
