August 30, 2016: HIV Resistance Testing in 2016: The Role of Archive DNA Testing Webinar

August 30, 2016 - August 30, 2016
1:00 pm ET
Webinar

The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity as part of a nationwide continuing medical education (CME) effort for physicians on the evolving challenges of managing HIV infection. Although the impact of drug resistance has diminished with more effective and convenient antiretroviral therapy for HIV infection, drug resistance does still occur and requires resistance testing. However, standard resistance testing does not identify resistance mutations if the patient's HIV RNA is undetectable or very low.

September 1, 2016: Update on New Biobehavioral Approaches to HIV Prevention Webinar

September 01, 2016 - September 01, 2016
1:00 pm ET
Webinar

The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity on the evolving challenges of managing HIV disease as part of a nationwide continuing medical education (CME) effort for physicians. The use of emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate as preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent HIV acquisition in men and women who demonstrate at-risk behaviors has been approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the US Food and Drug Administration for several years. However, uptake has been limited in some quarters because of concerns about behavioral disinhibition, selection for drug resistance, and drug-related toxic effects in otherwise healthy people. This webinar will review recent data from PrEP clinical trials and demonstration projects presented at recent research conferences, including the 21st International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa, held from July 18 to July 22, 2016. The presentation will highlight evidence for the optimal use of PrEP as part of a comprehensive prevention package and best practices in PrEP screening and delivery. The presentation will also discuss investigational HIV prevention modalities in current clinical trials, including injectable and topical antiretroviral treatments, and infusible monoclonal antibodies.

September 6, 2016: Pediatric and Adolescent HIV Infection Webinar

September 06, 2016 - September 06, 2016
1:00 pm ET
Webinar

The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity on the evolving challenges of managing HIV disease as part of a nationwide continuing medical education (CME) effort for physicians. This session will focus on advances in the field of pediatric and adolescent HIV infection. Perinatal HIV transmission in the US is now quite rare and survival of HIV-infected children has markedly improved. However, challenges remain among HIV-infected children who will require lifelong treatment and experience complications of longstanding infection and antiretroviral therapy. Behaviorally infected youth pose somewhat different challenges, with recognition of transmission risk, under-diagnosis and retention in care, which will also be addressed.

July 22 - 28, 2018: International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018)

July 22, 2018 - July 28, 2018
Amsterdam RAI
Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS

The International AIDS Society (IAS) announced that Amsterdam, Netherlands will host the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018). AIDS 2018 will be held on 22-28 July 2018 at the Amsterdam RAI and is expected to bring together some 18,000 participants from around the world.

“The Netherlands is a great example of what happens when a government supports outstanding science and embraces evidence-based HIV programmes in combination with a robust commitment to human rights,” said Chris Beyrer, President of the IAS. “We are delighted to convene the International AIDS Conference in a city and country so committed to fighting the epidemic.”

This is the second time that Amsterdam will host the International AIDS Conference (IAC). The 8th International AIDS Conference was held in the Dutch capital in 1992. The last IAC to be held in Europe was AIDS 2010 in Vienna. Amsterdam will be an important opportunity to measure the progress since then, especially in Eastern Europe where decisive leadership and engagement is critical for an effective response to the epidemic.

“We are honored to host AIDS 2018 and committed to making it a historic event,” said Mr. Lambert Grijns, the Netherlands Ambassador for Sexual and Reproductive Health & Rights and HIV/AIDS. “Amsterdam is a global city and we will ensure the conference reflects the many thousands of people who will attend.”

Amsterdam was selected to host AIDS 2018 following an evaluation of candidate cities conducted by the IAS Governing Council. Bids are reviewed based on three main criteria: impact on the epidemic, conference infrastructure, and freedom of movement and travel for people living with HIV. According to a policy of non-discrimination first adopted by the IAS Governing Council in 1992, the IAS will not hold its conferences in countries that restrict short term entry of people living with HIV, and/or require prospective HIV-positive visitors to declare their HIV status on visa application forms or other documentation required for entry into the country.

The International AIDS Conference was previously held in Melbourne, Australia in 2014. The next conference (AIDS 2016) will be held in Durban, South Africa in July 2016.
