Welcome Message

Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce that the Asia Pacific AIDS & Co-Infections Conference (APACC) 2020 is scheduled to take place in Bangkok, Thailand on 4 - 6 June 2020.

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, most major conferences do not usually address local and regional issues. In particular, the Asian medical community in this field of research currently has very few platforms that serve the needs of HIV healthcare professionals in this region.

APACC provides a much-needed scientific platform that focuses on the developments, issues, and needs in the Asia Pacific region. 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 inform how treatment guidelines are implemented.

We look forward to welcoming you at APACC 2020!
