ViiV Healthcare’s Science on the Sofa is back for season two! For too long, the latest in HIV research and science was limited to laboratories and medical congresses – far away from the lives of the people it impacted the most. Through Science on the Sofa, we’re changing how we talk about HIV science by breaking down complex concepts to make the science accessible for everyone.

Join in on the conversation with Science on the Sofa – which promises to bring you compelling, open, and authentic conversations from the scientists who are working to transform the trajectory of HIV alongside the community advocates who are making change on the ground.

Each episode takes a first-hand look across timely topics that intersect the world of HIV, health, and science while sharing the inimitable experiences of the HIV and scientific communities. Greater knowledge can empower and help us all understand the role we have to play in today’s scientific discussion. Join us on the sofa, where you’d don’t need a PhD to get in on the science with us!




The process of identifying, creating and developing generally well-tolerated and effective innovative HIV therapies is complex and requires ongoing collaboration between research teams that work in many different areas of medicines development.
