ASIA-PACIFIC HIV CLINICAL FORUM 2020: OPTIMIZING TREATMENT

This forum meeting provides challenging plenary lectures in English followed by ample time for Q&A and debate, stimulating interaction in order to bridge the knowledge gap between experts and the HIV treating community in the Asia-Pacific region. The meeting is scheduled prior to the Asia-Pacific AIDS & Co-Infections Conference (APACC) 2020 which will allow healthcare professionals to combine both meetings in one trip thus limiting travel time and the number of days away from the clinic.

 

This program will feature challenging plenary lectures followed by ample time for Q&A and debate, stimulating interaction, and the sharing of knowledge within the HIV-treating community. The onsite program will end with a networking reception for community building; thus, providing delegates with the unique opportunity to meet their colleagues in a focused and scientific setting.

BACKGROUND


The HIV Clinical Forum is a series of interactive programs that provide an independent scientific program on emerging topics in HIV involving experts where HIV clinicians and allied healthcare professionals receive updates on the latest developments related to HIV management, where they can share their clinical experience and present the results from their ongoing and completed cohorts/ research programs.

 

Furthermore, the HIV Clinical Forum provides an educational setting where healthcare professionals can acquire specific skills that will enhance their capabilities to interpret research results and even develop new research projects.
