Can ARV treatment be used to prevent HIV infection? What are the implications? How far along is the science?
Mark your calendar to hear an online presentation and discussion on treatment as prevention, Thursday, April 1 at 10am EDT.
You can ask questions via the web as it is taking place, and you can also take part in the discussion by calling a toll-free number. The online ‘webinar’ is sponsored by AVAC.
The talk will feature the co-chair of our Center’s Scientific Advisory Committee, Dr. Ken Mayer, who is at Brown University and Fenway Health. Dr. Mayer will provide a short overview of his CROI presentation on antiretrovirals for HIV prevention, which will include updates on treatment as prevention, PrEP, PEP and ARV-based microbicides.
The rest of the hour will be devoted to discussion, which will be moderated by Chris Collins, Vice President and Director of Public Policy at amfAR and AVAC board member.
