International AIDS Society


Role and Benefits of Volunteers

Volunteers will help plan the conference, coordinate programme activities, greet visiting delegates, assist with registration, act as guides during the conference, staff various offices and activities, help in the Global Village and perform other crucial tasks.

Volunteer will have access to conference sessions outside of their shifts, a lunch each day and a Certificate of Appreciation.

Furthermore, volunteers will have the possibility to gain international experience at the world's largest conference on AIDS and to unite in the response to AIDS.

Join a wonderful team of volunteers!
