Research for Prevention conference

LVCT Health will be attending this years, HIV Research for Prevention  2016: AIDS Vaccine, Microbicide, and ARV-based Prevention Science (HIVR4P 2016), to be held 17–21 October 2016 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago, Chicago, USA.

 

HIVR4P is the world's only scientific meeting dedicated exclusively to the latest research on all forms of biomedical HIV prevention. Through both abstract and non-abstract-driven sessions, HIVR4P supports cross-fertilization among research on HIV vaccines, microbicides, PrEP, treatment as prevention, and other biomedical prevention approaches, while also providing a venue to discuss the research findings, questions, and priorities that are specific to each modality. 

 

During the five day conference, we shall make 5 presentations (4 posters and 1 oral). The presentations are from our IPCP project, which is a demonstration project testing effective delivery of oral HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) as part of HIV combination prevention intervention. Below is a schedule of the presentations to be made by the LVCT health team. Follow the conference through #HIVR4P
