7th INTEREST Workshop
The mission of the INTEREST workshop is to function as a platform to discuss how recent insights in HIV may translate to new intervention strategies for areas with limited resources.
The organizing committee consists of experts in antiretroviral therapy, public health, epidemiology, immunology and virology. The annual meeting brings together around 250 participants for a 3-day meeting comprising invited lectures, abstract driven oral and poster sessions and round table discussions.
The workshop size and atmosphere facilitate discussion and interactions between the participants. Six successful meetings have been convened since INTEREST’s inception, the first being held in Uganda, followed by Senegal, Zambia, Mozambique, Tanzania and Kenya.
Like its predecessors, the 6th INTEREST workshop in Kenya in 2012 was experienced a very relevant and interactive. In feed-back by participants the Workshop was called ‘the African CROI', attracting 201 participants from 5 continents.
We like to invite you to participate in the 7th INTEREST meeting to be held in Dakar, Senegal on 14 - 17 May 2013.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
