The article focuses on the Thirteenth International AIDS Conference, which took place from July 9 to 14, 2000 in Durban, South Africa. It was the first conference to be held in a city in the developing world. However, as the event approached, the tension mounted among the medical world and advocacy groups. For several months, South Africa's President Thabo Mbeki, had been open to the theories of some Western researchers who denied the causal relationship between virus and infection. He had even invited some of them to a panel and had temporarily stopped all mother-to-child transmission prevention programmes on the grounds that the medication used was harmful.
