14th International Workshop on HIV Transmission
The 14th International Workshop on HIV Transmission is scheduled to take place on 12 - 13 December 2019 in the United States.
Over the years, advances in HIV treatment have led to an enhanced understanding of the virus and improved care of HIV infected patients. However, our insights into the spread of the HIV virus remain limited. A more extensive exchange of knowledge on the various aspects of HIV transmission provides important perspectives for a better approach to the epidemic. For this purpose, an integrated forum was set up in 2006 to reveal perspectives of experts from different fields, enabling discussion on all relevant mechanisms of HIV transmission. Since then the annual Transmission Workshops are valuable to those specialized (or specializing) in HIV transmission.
The main objective of this meeting is to provide a forum for basic scientists, clinicians, virologists, epidemiologists and public health officials to present and to discuss the various aspects of the transmission of HIV. The ultimate goal of the meeting is the integration of efforts from all relevant disciplines in order to constrain the spread of (drug-resistant) HIV. We are sure the present workshop will help to achieve this goal.
The 2018 meeting materials including the abstract book and presentations are available here.
