#HIVIstanbul2024, organized by Red Ribbon Istanbul with the support of volunteers and essential local, regional, and international support, aims to create an even more inclusive agenda in its fourth year with the international visibility and vision it has added in 2022 and 2023 to its success in 2021, the first year of implementation.

#HIVIstanbul was held with the theme "HIV will lose" in 2021, "Civil Society has the answer” in 2022, and "Are we really equal?" in 2023. In line with the global agenda, #HIVIstanbul aims to discuss the barriers to community leadership in the global common HIV response and ways to enable a more effective leadership by centering on Türkiye and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA) regions.
