A Pandemic Within a Pandemic will explore some of the ways in which PLHIV, ASOs and HCPs have adapted their treatment, services and programming to support those living with HIV during COVID-19. The panel will also acknowledge the ongoing challenges of the HIV/AIDS pandemic for more than 40 years. The panel will feature queer community members with lived experience, an HCP focusing on PLHIV and a Canadian ASO that exempliﬁes innovation and adaption. The panel will explore persisting disparities in HIV care and how these have been compounded by COVID-19. It hopes to both identify problems and provide some high-level calls to action for new solutions to address gaps in access to care and treatment optimization.
