9th INTEREST workshop 2015

A very successful 9th INTEREST Workshop, was held in Harare, Zimbabwe 5-8 May 2015, where 472 participants attended the workshop.

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, Janssen, ViiV / GSK, Mylan and MSD for making this event possible.

We are glad to inform you that the abstract book as well as the slides of the presentations given during the meeting (providing the speaker's consent was received) will be available shortly at www.infectiousdiseasesonline.com.

We look forward to welcoming you again to the 10th INTEREST Workshop in 2016 in West Africa. Exact place, date and venue will be announced shortly.

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. 9 successful meetings have been convened since INTEREST's inception; in Uganda, Senegal (twice), Zambia (twice), Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya and Zimbabwe.

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.
