The 15th edition of the International Workshop on HIV Transmission Principles of Intervention 2020 will take place on 10 and 11 December 2020 as a virtual meeting.
Over the years, advances in HIV treatment have led to an enhanced understanding of the virus and improved care of HIV-positive patients. However, our insights into the spread of the HIV virus remain limited. A more extensive exchange of knowledge on the various aspects of HIV transmission provides important perspectives for a better approach to the epidemic. For this purpose, an integrated forum was set up in 2006 to present perspectives of experts from different fields, enabling discussion on all relevant mechanisms of HIV transmission. Since then, the International Workshop on HIV Transmission is valuable to those specialized (or specializing) in HIV transmission.
The main objective of this meeting is to provide a forum for basic scientists, clinicians, virologists, epidemiologists, and public health officials to present and discuss the various aspects of the transmission of HIV. The ultimate goal of the meeting is the integration of efforts from all relevant disciplines in order to constrain the spread of (drug-resistant) HIV.
