Over the years enormous progress has been made in the fight against HIV and co-infections with HIV. Both academia and industry have contributed greatly to equipping the medical community with the best medications and expertise possible to optimally treat their HIV and co-infected patients. However, the international platforms for scientific interchange are not always accessible to medical professionals worldwide due to budget and travel restrictions. Also, these major events do not usually address local and regional issues. In particular, the Asian medical community in this field of research is facing challenges in this regard as there is currently no platform that serves the needs of HIV healthcare professionals in this region.
The APACC provides a much-needed scientific platform that focuses on the developments, issues and needs in the Asia Pacific region, which has no other conference of this kind. Researchers have the opportunity to present and discuss the latest developments and are offered opportunities for interaction, networking and building collaborations. Top experts integrate science and clinical practice through state-of-the-art lectures, clinical case discussions, round-table discussions and debates in order to reach consensus on best practices and develop guidelines for treatment.
We look forward to welcoming you in Hong Kong!
