2nd European Workshop on Healthy Living with HIV

Dear Colleague,

It is our great pleasure to announce the 2nd European Workshop on Healthy Living for HIV infected individuals!

We invite you to join in our effort to build a community of HIV treating expert clinicians focusing on promoting a full and healthy life for all patients.

The meeting will be held on 15 - 16 September, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain (venue tbc).

Over the last two decades, HIV has been transformed from a fatal disease in to a chronic condition where the great majority of HIV infected individuals can look forward to a full and active life. This has been due to an increased understanding of the disease and its management, but above all to the unprecedented improvement in antiretroviral drugs.

Not surprisingly, current management of HIV infected patients continues to be overwhelmingly influenced by the fear of AIDS, suffering and death, with treatment success measured by long term avoidance of these conditions. But in the context of the armamentarium now available to clinicians and HIV infected individuals, much loftier goals are appropriate. Clinicians should now be focused not only on avoiding AIDS, but on guaranteeing HIV infected individuals a full long life with a very minimum of adverse events or co-morbidities. Planning not only for the next 5 – 10 years, but for many decades to come with a healthy and productive older age. This requires clinicians adapt a proactive approach to preventing long term morbidities and incorporate this in to their decision making process when making treatment choices.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

To help develop a European community of future clinical leaders, who embrace an updated and relevant paradigm for the optimal care of HIV infected individuals. Focused not only on viral suppression, but also on guaranteeing them optimal health throughout their lifetime. Striving to develop a clinical setting where treatment decisions consider all their implications for long term health.

Join us and do not miss out on the opportunity to:
•    Learn from detailed data on new drug options and their impact on long-term health of HIV infected individuals.
•    Study current treatment strategies and how they might be improved.
•    Hearing the results of studies on how toxicities would be impacted at different stages in the patient’s lifecycle.

This meeting is by invitation only.
