Welcome to UNAIDS Science now and to the 9th issue of HIV this month 2014!

On 16th September, the 69th UN General Assembly commenced in New York. Among other issues, rising concerns for the outbreak of Ebola in western Africa took center stage. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon tells the Assembly that no one is insulated from the Ebola threat and stressed that all of us must be part of the response. On Tuesday, 30th September, the first Ebola case in the US has been confirmed by CDC and the Texas Health Department.

This month, the HIV Research for Prevention (R4P) conference is happening in Cape Town, South Africa. It is the world's first and only scientific meeting dedicated exclusively to biomedical HIV prevention research, and UNAIDS is happy to be a conference partner. Presentations and discussions about HIV vaccines, pre-exposure prophylaxis and microbicides fill the programme!

Happy reading!
