AIDS 2010 offers a free childcare service, called KIDS’ CORNER, for children between the ages of two and 10 years. The childcare facility is located in-house at the conference venue. It offers 20 places, which will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. 20 places are usually sufficient to match the demand at AIDS conferences. However, the organisers will do their best to find alternative solutions should the number of requests exceed the availability.
To book a place at Kids’ Corner, fill in the form and return it to Wiener Kinderfreunde by 18 June 2010.Download the form to register a child to the Kids’ Corner

Kids’ Corner will offer a variety of activities for children, including games, drawing and handicrafts. The well-equipped and secure outdoor garden provides further space to play, weather permitting. Food and Meals
No food will be provided, but water, tea and juice are available at no cost. Meals have to be organized by parents. Parents can leave lunch boxes, snacks and drinks for their children at Kids’ Corner. Health Insurance
Each child at Kids’ Corner must be covered by a health insurance that is valid in Austria
. If you do not have health insurance and are unable to obtain sufficient coverage from an insurer in your own country, you can buy health insurance for the duration of the conference online on the registration form when registering your child as an Accompanying Child.
Children who are physically injured due to an accident during an activity supervised by the Wiener Kinderfreunde are also insured. Insurance only covers costs that are not accepted by conventional medical insurance. However compensation for pain and suffering, as well as repatriation costs to respective home countries, is not covered. Liability Insurance
As soon as a child is handed over to a custodian of the Wiener Kinderfreunde, the child is covered with liability and accident insurance, which comes into effect if children cause damage to a third party (whether intentionally or not) during a supervised activity (for example, a child shoots a ball into a windowpane, or a child is pushed by others and his or her glasses fall and break). The insurance does not cover damage caused to personal belongings by the child’s own carelessness or negligence (for example, a child stumbles and shatters his spectacles, or a child damages her own clothes), loss of personal belongings, and theft of valuable belongings.
