About the Program:

Program Overview:

The ARV Therapies and Therapeutic Strategies program is a comprehensive, independent review of the 16th European AIDS Conference (EACS 2017). This program consists of five components: (1) European Perspective on EACS 2017: a 1.5 hour Case-based Internet symposium featuring Europe-based expert faculty reviewing and discussing key presentations with a focus on clinical management and treatment in the EU; (2) EACS 2017 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; (3) Comprehensive Expert Review and Discussion of Key Presentations**: an on-line, in-depth review of 8 of the key poster/presentations reviewed in the Internet symposium (4) Rapid-Fire Review of EACS 2017**: a podcast that provides a brief, audio summary of the most essential data presented at the conference; and (5) From Conference to Clinic: Reviewing and Applying Data From EACS 2017**: case-based dinner meetings during which the key data are reviewed, discussed and applied to patient care.

The European Perspective on EACS 2017 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.
