8th INTEREST Workshop 2014

We are shocked and deeply saddened by the loss of our dear colleagues Joep Lange & Jacqueline van Tongeren. Our thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones in this difficult time.


The 8th International Workshop on HIV Treatment, Pathogenesis and Prevention Research in Resource-poor Settings, was held on 5 - 9 May 2014 at the InterContinental Hotel in Lusaka, Zambia.

The abstract and program book as well as the presentations (providing the speaker's consent was received) are now available online at www.infectiousdiseasesonline.com.

The Organizing Committee would like to thank all invited speakers and participants for their contribution to this workshop!

We would like to thank our sponsors AbbVie, Gilead and Janssen (Platinum), Merck (Silver), ViiV Healthcare (Supporter) and Mylan and ANRS (contributors) for making this event possible.
The session "Drug Resistance in Africa" was sponsored by the Regional HIV/AIDS Programme of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Pretoria, SA.

We were pleased with the partnership with the Southern African HIV Clinicians Society and RESAPSI (Réseau Africain des practiciens assurant la prise en charge médicale des personnes vivants avec le VIH/Sida).

New in 2014 were the pre-conference simultaneous focused sessions on Paediatrics and Implementation Science. These "meet-the-experts" sessions on 5 May were well attended by local participants.

We hope to announce the dates and location of the 9th edition of the workshop in the course of June. Please feel free to subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed on the latest developments.
