Welcome note from the chairs
Over the years, advances in HIV treatment have led to an enhanced understanding of the virus and improved care of HIV infected patients. However our insights into the spread of the HIV virus remain limited. A more extensive exchange of knowledge on the various aspects of HIV transmission provides important perspectives for a better approach to the epidemic. For this purpose, an integrated forum was set up in 2006 to reveal perspectives of experts from different fields enabling discussion on all relevant mechanisms of HIV transmission. The annual Transmission Workshops have since continued to prove themselves valuable to those specialized (or specializing) in HIV transmission.
The main objectives of this meeting are to provide a forum for basic scientists, clinicians, virologists, epidemiologists and public health officials to present and to discuss the various aspects of the transmission of HIV. The ultimate goal of the meeting is the integration of efforts from all relevant disciplines in order to constrain the spread of (drug-resistant) HIV.
We are looking forward to a full program of invited lectures, oral and poster presentations and roundtables.
We look forward to welcoming in Paris, France for this exciting event in 2017!
