International AIDS conference: the Caucus for Evidence-Based Prevention.

In mid-2005, SIECUS, amfAR (the Foundation for AIDS Research), and Population Action International joined together to create a caucus of U.S.-based nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) focused on prevention to be convened during the 2006 International AIDS Conference (IAC). The three organizations represent different issues and the coming together of organizations dedicated to HIV/AIDS and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Comprised of dozens of diverse organizations, the Caucus for Evidence-Based Prevention was created for the specific purpose of promoting HIV prevention supported by sound science at the 2006 IAC. The Caucus serves as a unified voice for U.S.-based organizations which believe that evidence, not ideology, should guide HIV prevention.
