Overview

The IAS–USA volunteer Board of Directors will meet for the annual Board of Directors meeting. Again this year, the Board will conduct a live, hour-long, interactive, roundtable webinar covering current questions and issues in HIV research and care. The annual IAS–USA volunteer Board meeting is crucial to the development of IAS–USA continuing medical education (CME) activities, as new research that is expected to be released is discussed, a comprehensive assessment of gaps in the knowledge or practice is reviewed, and the gaps and needs assessments combined from all IAS–USA CME activities in the previous year are evaluated.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to describe current issues in research and care for HIV including:

  • Advances in strategies for antiretroviral therapy
  • Future strategies for therapy including discussions on long-acting agents, dual therapy, and more
  • Important issues in STIs and OI prevention in HIV infection
  • Future directions in HIV prevention
  • What's up with Cure?
  • What's up with eliminating the epidemic?
