The Hub is a dynamic community space which will highlight programs, services and key focus areas for organisations involved in Australia’s community response to HIV.
The Hub will also feature a selection of HIV/STI-related short films and health promotion resources from community organisations working across Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
AFAO is pleased to invite community organisations and groups to submit short films and posters for display. Expression of interest should be sent to Finn O’Keefe at AFAO by 31 August.
As HIV treatment options continue to change and evolve, it is time to challenge existing thinking, apply scientific innovation and ensure the best patient outcomes are achieved with the treatments we have available today. This is the aim of the Gilead Symposium. The first presentation, by Professor Andrew Carr, will focus on single tablet regimens and ask the question: is this regimen for a lifetime? The second presentation, by Professor Darren Russell, will focus on using existing treatments as prevention; how can we make the playground safer? Finally, Rubern Meehan will highlight how innovative thinking, and application of scientific investigation might deliver outcomes beyond today’s expectations. #wheretonext?
