H-TEAM at IAS 2019
From 21-24 July, Mexico City will host the 10th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2019). Held every two years, the IAS Conference on HIV Science is a unique forum for scientists, clinicians, public health experts and community leaders to examine the latest scientific developments in HIV-related research with a focus on moving science into practice and policy.
IAS 2019 is organized by the International AIDS Society (IAS). Founded in 1988, the IAS is the world’s largest association of HIV professionals, with members from more than 180 countries working on all fronts of the global response to HIV. The IAS is the steward of the world’s two most prestigious HIV conferences: the International AIDS Conference and the IAS Conference on HIV Science. IAS 2019 is expected to gather more than 6,000 participants.
This year, H-TEAM’s Maartje Dijkstra of Public Health Service Amsterdam (GGD Amsterdam) will attend the Conference in Mexico. Her abstract “Targeted screening and immediate start of treatment for acute HIV infection decreases time between HIV diagnosis and viral suppression among MSM at a Sexual Health Clinic in Amsterdam” was selected to be presented during the conference. The abstract will be presented by Dijkstra during the session “Same-day ART, one size fits all?” on Wednesday 24 July from 11.00 – 12.30h.
