Childcare



AIDS 2012 offers free childcare service, for children in between the ages of 2 and 10 years. The childcare room is located within the conference venue. There are availabilities for each morning and afternoon of the conference, which are to be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. While these spots are usually sufficient with the demands of the AIDS conference, conference organizers will do their best to find alternative solutions should the number of requests exceed the availability.

Please be advised child care registration is currently at its maximum capacity.
