Welcome to the Asia Pacific HIV Clinical Forum website!
The first edition of the Asia Pacific HIV Clinical Forum was held on 31 May and 1 June 2017 in Hong Kong, preceding the APACC 2017.
The meeting was a success with great lectures and exciting discussions! Thank you to our conference supporter ViiV Healthcare for making this meeting possible and to our endorsers: AIDS Society of the Philippines, HealthHIV, HIV/AIDS Coordinating Committee (HACC), Hong Kong Infection Control Nurses Association (HKICNA), HIV-NAT, Hong Kong Society for HIV Medicine (HKSHM), IAPAC, The Japanese Association for Infectious Diseases, Malaysian Society for HIV Medicine (MASHM) for supporting this meeting!
The Asia PacificHIV Clinical Forum focused entirely on the Asia Pacific community and 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 will be made available shortly.
We look forward to welcoming you to the next Asia Pacific HIV Clinical Forum on Integrase Inhibitors!
