Childcare


AIDS 2016 offers childcare service at subsidized prices, for children between the ages of 2 and 12 years. The childcare room is located within the conference venue. There are availabilities for each morning and afternoon of the conference, which are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. While these spots are usually sufficient to meet the demands of the AIDS conference, conference organizers will do their best to find alternative solutions should the number of requests exceed the availability but cannot guarantee it.

Registration

Registration for childcare is mandatory and must be done no later than Friday, 1st July 2016.

Childcare registration is not final until after a confirmation e-mail has been received stating whether the registration was accepted or denied. Accommodations for your child(ren) will only be guaranteed when you receive a written positive confirmation. Confirmations will be sent via e-mail within 48 hours of receipt of registration. Once you receive a positive confirmation, you must register your child for the conference as an “Accompanying Child”.


Children without an Accompanying Child badge will not be given access to the conference area, and therefore will not have access to the childcare room. Please note that children will also have to go through the same accreditation process as parents as requested by the South Africa Authorities.
