After the highly successful workshop in Lusaka on 5 - 9 May, we are pleased to announce that the preparations for the 9th INTEREST workshop have started. This "African CROI" workshop will be held on 5 - 8 May 2015 in the Rainbow Towers hotel in Harare, Zimbabwe.
The INTEREST workshop focuses on issues of particular relevance for the African continent and offers young researchers the opportunity to present their data. The workshop size and atmosphere facilitate discussion and interaction between participants. 8 successful meetings have been convened since INTEREST's inception; in Uganda, Senegal (twice), Zambia (twice), Mozambique, Tanzania and Kenya.
The format of the workshop is a 3.5 day program consisting of plenary sessions on HIV prevention and treatment presented by renowned invited speakers, oral abstract presentations, roundtable discussions and poster sessions. Ample time is allocated to Q&A and discussion in order to foster an intimate and interactive workshop.
INTEREST workshop is a collaboration of Virology Education and AIGHD.
We hope that you will join us (again) in this important educational event.
