Abstract:

The meeting brought together an enormous assortment of interests including academic analysts and biomedical researchers, program managers project directors, writers, and activities Drug and pharmaceutical representatives, interest group managers, book exhibitors, and professional protestors combined to create the atmosphere of a gigantic bazaar. Berlin gave us proof, if we needed it, that AIDS has become a very big business. Unquestionably, the IX international conference in Berlin June 7-11 was the largest of its kind. Some 15,000 participants, including 1500 members of the press corp, came together to review the struggle against HIV and AIDS. No break-throughs were announced and no startling discoveries seized the headlines. There was some sense of scientific advance in fighting opportunistic diseases and in understanding the life cycle and biology of HIV, but overall Berlin was a business as usual enterprise. Conference, AIDS
