September 27, 2016 - September 30, 2016
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

The theme of this year’s Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) conference is “Individualised guidelines and clinical performance measurement in an era of personalised medicine.” G-I-N’s mission is to lead, strengthen and support collaboration and research within the guideline community, and the annual conference provides an excellent opportunity for networking, learning, and sharing information. We welcome all stakeholders, from public and health care providers to policy makers and insurers, to guideline developers, implementers, and researchers, performance measures developers and implementers, and anyone else with a vested interest in developing, promoting, adapting, or implementing guidelines and performance measures.

The American College of Physicians, the ECRI Institute, and Penn Medicine, together with G-I-N, are organising the conference in Philadelphia, USA. Philadelphia is a historical and cultural hub in the USA, offering a plethora of museums and other attractions, world class restaurants, music, theatre, and more. The city is conveniently located with direct flights from Asia and Europe.

The University of Pennsylvania, the birthplace of American Medicine will serve as the venue for the conference proceedings. The gala networking dinner will be hosted at the National Constitution Center in center city Philadelphia.

Whether you will be an attendee or a presenter, G-I-N2016 will provide a venue where you will learn about the latest and greatest about guidelines, learn from each other, utilise this as an opportunity for networking, and finally make new contacts and friends. We hope to see you in Philadelphia this fall for another informative, productive, and fun G-I-N conference.

October 4, 2016: Women and HIV Cure: Where are We? Women in the HIV Cure Landscape Webinar

October 04, 2016 - October 04, 2016
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm ET
Webinar

Women and HIV Cure: A Three-Part Webinar Series Presented by the Women's HIV Research Collaborative (Part 1)

In recent years, the scientific community has made great strides toward finding a cure for HIV. Activists and advocates are rightfully excited about these developments, but many questions remain about what a cure will entail and how the science might reach different populations and communities. While cure research has generated exciting results, it is crucial that these results include and are relevant to all people with HIV. Women, however, are often excluded or otherwise left out of HIV cure efforts. The members of the Women’s HIV Research Collaborative (WHRC) believe that cure research must include women—cisgender and transgender alike—in order to produce results that are applicable and meaningful to women. In this spirit of sisterhood and the meaningful involvement of people with HIV, the WHRC has assembled a diverse group of expert women working in community advocacy, biomedical research, and bioethics to guide us through this three-part webinar series.

Part 1: Where are We? Women in the HIV Cure Landscape
Presenters will provide an overview of current HIV cure research with an emphasis on sex and gender. They will explain the importance of considering sex and gender when designing and implementing cure studies as well as the potential clinical and community impact when sex- and gender-specific questions are not included. By the end of this webinar, attendees will

  • Understand key terms in HIV cure research
  • Have learned about the major developments in HIV cure research and what remains unknown
  • Be able to describe the importance of considering sex and gender in HIV cure research
Coming up...

Tuesday, October 25 | Part 2: What Cure Means to Women, What Women Mean to Cure

Thursday, November 17 | Part 3: Barriers and Facilitators to Women’s Participation in Cure Research

The Women's HIV Research Collaborative is a working group of the Legacy Project at the Office of HIV/AIDS Network Coordination.

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.
