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.
