The Vienna YouthForce and the Youth Programme of AIDS 2010 are organizing a Youth Pre-Conference
supported by UNFPA. The Pre-Conference is open to young people attending AIDS 2010 and to other
Those already registered for AIDS 2010 will be given preference.
The pre-conference will consist of informative sessions and skills-building workshops on HIV and AIDS
issues ranging from scientific knowledge to effective political advocacy. Participants will also gain skills
in research methodology, monitoring and evaluation, and media and communications, as well as
updated information on prevention strategies, harm reduction, and treatment, care and support. A call
for sessions, trainings and facilitators will be made by end of March.
Participants will also learn how to advocate to policymakers on issues relevant to young people and
how to deliver the YouthForce's advocacy messages at the conference and beyond. The pre-conference
is an especially important opportunity for first-time conference attendees to meet other youth delegates
and gain skills to make the most of the conference itself. Applications can be submitted in April.
