Asia Pacific HIV Clinical Forum: Integrase Inhibitors

Welcome to the Asia Pacific HIV Clinical Forum website!

The 1st Asia Pacific HIV Clinical Forum on Integrase Inhibitors will be held on 31 May & 1 June, 2017 in Hong Kong, just prior to our 2nd Asian Pacific AIDS & Co-Infections Conference (APACC).

This program is an abstract-driven scientific & educational program dedicated to the integration of science and clinical practice focusing on Integrase Inhibitors.

By joining us, you will be updated on the latest developments related to Integrase, and will be provided with a platform to share your clinical experience. The program will include plenary lectures, Q&A and debate, stimulating interaction in order to bridge the knowledge gap between experts and the HIV treatment community.

This Forum offers a unique platform for discussion on the clinical utility of Integrase Inhibitors in daily practice. After your participation in the meeting, you will be able to:

  • identify and manage patients who would be eligible for induction-maintenance therapy;

  • recognize potential drug interactions and, based on this knowledge, develop treatment strategies that could prevent these interactions;

  • design treatment strategies for different patient populations;

  • describe and identify the various factors that influence the use of long acting antivirals.

Who should attend?
If you are doing research on or have clinical experience with Integrase Inhibitors or if you are interested in learning more about using Integrase Inhibitors in daily practice, please join us on 31 May and 1 June, 2017 in Hong Kong. Location: tba.

We look forward to welcoming you to the meeting in Hong Kong!
