2nd Global HIV Clinical Forum: Integrase Inhibitors

Welcome to the Global HIV Clinical Forum website!

The second edition of the Global HIV Clinical Forum on Integrase Inhibitors was held on 22 July, 2017 in Paris (France), preceding the IAS2017.

The meeting was an incredible success with almost 85 attendees visiting the meeting!

The Global HIV Clinical Forum focused entirely on Integrase Inhibitors as Integrase Inhibitors are rapidly gaining a central role in the routine care of HIV infected individuals. The HIV Clinical Forum meetings aim at enhancing the clinical skills and research capabilities of HIV healthcare professionals in regard to this unique class of antiretroviral drugs.

Meeting materials such as abstracts, presentations and webcasts have been made available on InfectiousDiseasesOnline (given that speakers have provided their permission).

We look forward to welcoming you to the next Global HIV Clinical Forum on Integrase Inhibitors in 2018, preceding the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS2018) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands!

On behalf of the Global HIV Clinical Forum Program Chairs, we would like to thank ViiV Healthcare for their unrestricted education grant, as well as Mylan for their generous contribution. We would also like to thank our endorsers for their invaluable support of the meeting and of course a big thank you to all of our participants in making this meeting into a huge success!

We look forward to seeing you again in July 2018, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands!
