7th International Workshop on Aging & HIV

The International Workshop on HIV & Aging remains the only platform in the world for international exchange and dialogue with a cross-disciplinary team of experts involved in HIV and aging research. The meeting gathers a steady international community of researchers and healthcare professionals attributing to the workshop’s credibility within the field. The compact size of the meeting stimulates interaction, and encourages collaboration, which is considered one of the most effective elements of this program. After participating in this activity, participants will: • Identify age-related clinical complications found in the aging HIV-infected patient • Integrate the latest scientific research into daily clinical care to improve the quality of life of these patients • Identify the future challenges faced by this expanding population of elderly HIV infected patients The meeting will have a two day program consisting of invited lectures, abstract-driven scientific presentations and poster sessions where the latest developments will be reviewed and evaluated in order to identify important topics for future research, develop better approaches to treatment, and create a strategic agenda for future management problems associated with HIV and aging.
