General Information

The Fast-Track Cities 2022 conference will be hosted October 11-13, 2022, in Sevilla. Organized by the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC), the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, Fast-Track Cities Institute, Stop TB Partnership, and World Hepatitis Alliance, the conference will take place at the Sevilla International Conference Center.

Eight years since the launch of the Fast-Track Cities network, more than 380 cities and municipalities have signed the Paris Declaration on Fast-Track Cities. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, these cities and municipalities continue to accelerate their urban responses to HIV, tuberculosis (TB), and viral hepatitis. They are also engaged in efforts to eliminate inequity, social marginalization, and stigma as part of a broader social transformation agenda to make cities and municipalities inclusive, resilient, and sustainable.

The Fast-Track Cities 2022 conference’s aim is to highlight successes achieved across the Fast-Track Cities network, address cross-cutting challenges faced by local stakeholders, and share best practices in accelerating urban HIV, TB, HBV, and HCV responses. Building upon the successes of the past three global gatherings of the Fast-Track Cities network, this year’s conference will provide space for interactive dialogue to support a network of “connected cities,” facilitating the collaborative development of innovative approaches to attaining the goals, objectives, and targets to which all Fast-Track Cities are committed.

CONFERENCE PROGRAM

The Fast-Track Cities 2022 conference program will comprise a combination of plenary sessions, panel discussions, city/municipal case studies, oral and e-poster sessions, and skills-building workshops. In partnership with the Stop TB Partnership and the World Hepatitis Alliance, the conference will feature a wide range of topics related to ending the HIV and TB epidemics and eliminating HBV and HCV. Moreover, in collaboration with the United Nations Human Settlement Programme (UN-Habitat), the conference program will also include a satellite symposium focused on building equitable, healthier cities and municipalities for sustainable development. Additionally, through a joint initiative with the Mayor of Sevilla and Spain’s Ministry of Health, the conference will include a high-level panel focused on the theme of “Realizing the Right to Health for Migrant Populations.”
