About the Program

Program Overview

The ARV Therapies and Therapeutic Strategies program is a comprehensive, independent review of the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018). This program consists of four components: (1) CME Internet Symposium: AIDS 2018 Expert Review: a 1.5 hour Internet symposium that features an overview and discussion of key presentations and posters, selected by the expert faculty discussants; (2) European Perspective on AIDS 2018: a 1 hour panel discussion featuring Europe-based expert faculty reviewing and discussing key presentations with a focus on clinical management and treatment in the EU; (3) Rapid-Fire Review of AIDS 2018: a podcast that provides a brief, audio summary of the most essential data presented at the conference; and (4) From Conference to Clinic: Reviewing and Applying Data From AIDS 2018: case-based dinner meetings during which the key data are reviewed, discussed and applied to patient care.

The European Perspective on AIDS 2018 will provide a case-based, European focused review and discussion of key presentations on antiretroviral therapy presented at EACS 2017. The review and discussion will focus on HIV therapeutic options and developments, including: current treatment and management strategies, algorithms and recommendations, therapies in development, epidemiology, and diagnosis and clinical management of specific patient populations. This activity will enable EU-based health care providers caring for HIV-infected patients to become aware of and understand the data presented at this important conference and appropriately utilize those data to improve patient care in the EU. All online components of the program can be accessed at www.viraled.com.

This program is produced by the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and ViralEd, Inc. It is not a session created by or presented at AIDS 2018 and it is not sanctioned by the organizers of AIDS 2018.
