Who are we?

SFOYF or the AIDS 2020 Youth Force is a youth force that has come together to organize and manage youth activities during AIDS 2020 Virtual as well as ensure that youth have a voice during the conference. We aim to be the driving force behind an inclusive and meaningful youth programme that will represent young voices from around the world. 


Each year, the Youth Force organizes a youth-centric Pre-Conference covering a myriad of topics chosen and facilitated by young people. The broad agenda, reflecting the array of topics relevant for young people affected by HIV/AIDS globally, is designed to provide a safe space for sharing, capacity building, and empowerment of adults and youth who participate.

Due to 2020 being a pivotal year in the HIV epidemic, the Pre-Conference agenda will include both the lessons learned and ways forward, including scientific advancements. The agenda reflects the resilience theme of the AIDS 2020 Virtual conference by recognizing past achievements, discussing future practices and empowering participants in becoming and remaining resilient into the next decade.
