The OptAIDS Project: towards global halting of HIV/AIDS Information about the OptAIDS workshop The OptAIDS Workshop (http://www.mitacs.ca/conferences/OptAIDS/) brought together mathematicians, epidemiologists and health economists to create the WHAM model of the global HIV/AIDS epidemic. The one-day meeting was held simultaneously in Toronto on July 29, 2008 at the University of Toronto and in Second Life®. Second Life® is a virtual world, free to join, that allows groups of people to meet and talk with one another as if they were together in the same room. Each person in Second Life® was represented by an avatar. A follow-up discussion meeting was held as a mini-symposium at the Society for Mathematical Biology annual meeting on July 30 2008. The workshop was part of the OptAIDS project, which aims to consider HIV/AIDS as a global issue and develop mathematical models for eradication. This supplement in BMC Public Health is another branch of the project.
