On Sunday 100 community and community-interested participants, 80% from Malaysia came together to discuss some of the conference hot topics with international scientists. Included in the subjects of discussion were the HIV cure and the next generation of drugs, comprehensive packaging of services for Key Affected Populations (KAPs), policy and legal reform to ensure universal access to services for KAPs, and Trans-Pacific Partnerships and Free Trade Treaties and strategies to ensure the continued access to generic HIV medicine in developing countries.

Interpretation into Malay enabled local community representatives to engage fully in the discussions. The Community Activist Liaisons were also introduced to the group and they explained their role in supporting peaceful, productive activism in the conference.
