The 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018) is being held this year from 23–27 July in Amsterdam.
The programme and abstract listings are already online with open access, though the abstracts themselves are not available and will be embargoed until presented.
- ART – including new drugs and strategies.
- HIV and pregnancy, with first public forum to discuss concerns with dolutegravir.
- Prevention – especially treatment as prevention and PrEP.
- Cure related research – including approaches to overcome the viral reservoir – both in human and animal studies.
- Complications of HIV – including confections, ageing and neurological questions.
- Treatment access – as the international conference with the highest level of community involvement, many sessions focus on expanding access to treatment and prevention at a time when funding is increasingly difficult.
This is going to be an important conference, with UK researchers involved in many of these important studies. These notably include having sites in both the PARTNER and GEMINI studies and for presenting results of the first randomised kick-and-kill cure-related study from the RIVER group – all highlighted as important late-breaker abstracts.
