For the past 25 years, the International HIV Drug Resistance and Treatment Strategies Workshop has gained the reputation as the premier academic meeting on antiretroviral drug resistance.
For the past two years, the workshop has focused specific attention on the causes and spread of HIV drug resistance in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). To further raise the awareness of the consequences of antiretroviral resistance in LMIC and to improve knowledge on resistance in the areas with the highest burden of disease, the next workshop is being held in Johannesburg, South Africa, from 6 – 8 November 2017.
The Workshop is the premier forum addressing the continuous challenge of resistance to antiretrovirals globally. Leading clinical investigators, laboratory scientists, epidemiologists, programme directors and other stakeholders will present and discuss the latest findings on the mechanisms and spread of HIV drug resistance and its clinical implications.
The Workshop programme will consist of an educational programme on the first day followed by two days of invited plenary presentations and abstract-driven oral and poster sessions.
While abstracts related to HIV drug resistance from all settings are encouraged, the scientific committee is especially interested in abstracts that address issues for LMIC.
Again, we welcome you and hope to see you in Johannesburg, South Africa, for what promises to be another exciting and informative Workshop.
