June 2 - 3, 2016: 12th International Workshop on Co-Infection: HIV & Hepatitis

June 02, 2016 - June 03, 2016
Berlin, GERMANY

The 12th International Workshop on Co-infection - HIV & Hepatitis, will be held in Berlin, Germany on 2 - 3 June 2016.

The HIV & Hepatitis Co-infection workshop was initiated 12 years ago to address the rising need among clinicians and researchers for a workshop specifically focusing on these very challenging patients. With the success of antiretroviral therapy, HIV infected patients were seeing improvement in longevity, only to be challenged with the dangers and complications of their additional viral infection. Depending on the country – this was either a majority, or a significant minority of the HIV patients under care. Although HIV & Hepatitis co-infection was a small part of some major HIV conferences, the field lacked a dedicated meeting on this topic. Over the years more and more educational components were added given the growing needs of clinicians to keep up with the rapid developments. The HIV & Hepatitis Coinfection workshop still remains the only focused co-infection meeting in the field.

This year’s edition will continue to focus on developments in basic science, emerging therapies and clinical management. It will emphasize translational research and best practices in the clinical management of Hepatitis and HIV co-infection.

The informal format of the workshop will include plenary expert presentations, controversy discussion sessions on areas currently lacking consensus, and abstract-driven presentations. Experts in the field will be invited to give state-of-the-art lectures and controversial cases will be discussed by expert panels. The target audience consists of scientists and clinicians caring for co-infected patients or involved in research.

On behalf of the organizing committee we invite you to attend the 12th International Workshop on Co-infection - HIV & Hepatitis and encourage you to submit abstracts on your research in this field.

June 21 - 23, 2016: Training of Consumers on Quality Plus (TCQPlus) Program

June 21, 2016 - June 23, 2016
Atlanta, Georgia, USA

The National Quality Center (NQC) is seeking people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWH) and partnering Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) recipient staff to participate in its upcoming pilot program, entitled Trainers of Consumers on Quality Plus (TCQPlus). The first TCQPlus pilot session will be held June 21 - 23, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The goal of the NQC TCQPlus Program is to train PLWH and RWHAP staff to build their capacity to deliver quality improvement trainings to consumers in their local jurisdictions. The rigorous TCQPlus Program includes extensive pre-work assignments, a 3-day face-to-face training session, and post-training activities to reinforce the training content and to assist in evaluation activities. TCQPlus graduates are expected to conduct at least one (1) local Training of Consumers on Quality (TCQ) session with consumers within 2 months of the face-to-face TCQPlus session, and to meaningfully participate in the RWHAP recipient's clinical quality management program. It is our aim to build upon the success of the TCQ Program and increase the number of qualified consumer TCQ trainers nationwide. For more details about the TCQ and TCQPlus Program, please visit our website at NationalQualityCenter.org/TCQPlus.

To participate in the pilot TCQPlus Program, RWHAP recipient staff and PLWH must each complete their portion of a joint application and agree to serve as "Training Team Partners." A Training Team consists of 1-3 PLWH and one RWHAP staff person who is actively involved in the clinical quality management program. All partners play vital roles in planning, managing, and delivering local Training of Consumers on Quality (TCQ) sessions to consumers in their local jurisdictions.

We are asking for your assistance to widely disseminate this training announcement to both PLWH and RWHAP staff who may be interested in jointly applying to participate in the TCQPlus Program.

To apply for this training, please compete the online application at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TCQPlusApplication

Note that all members of a Training Team have to submit their own application.

Upon submitting the online application, please mail, fax, or e-mail required supporting documents to:

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.
