Press release from: Overcome

Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, April 26, 2011 -- The main theme of the 2012 HIV AIDS ISHEID Conference has just been announced: 'From HIV Testing to Cure'. This biennial international AIDS conference will take place next time in Marseille, France, May 23-25, 2012.

“Despite major advances in the past 25 years, HIV infection remains a global threat with major scientific, societal and human challenges ahead”, declared Alain Lafeuillade, chair of the meeting. This 3-day International HIV conference will tackle the issues from virology to therapy, via social sciences and human rights.

HIV currently infects 33 million individuals worldwide and kills 2 million people annually. In the absence of a preventive vaccine, new prevention strategies have to be tested, such as pre-exposure prophylaxis. Consequently, HIV prevention will be the subject of an entire session of the conference.

Even if antiretroviral therapy provides better and longer lives to patients, the search for a cure remains the ultimate goal. The best experts in the field, like Tae-Wook Chun and Franck Maldarelli (Bethesda, USA) will present the most recent results in terms of HIV eradication trials.
Several sessions will also be dedicated to therapy management, including the pharmacological interactions with recently introduced new compounds against hepatitis C.

Finally, at a time when the financial crisis impacts health care systems, the meeting will also address the issues of cost-effectiveness, antiretroviral generics, and health coverage.

The HIV AIDS 2012 Conference will welcome key opinion leaders and participants from all around the world, including scientists, practitioners, and activists. It will take place at the Congress Center of Marseille, France.

About the conference:
The Steering Committee contains Professor Jean-François Delfraissy (Director of the French Agency of AIDS Research, Paris, France), Jose Gatell (Barcelona, Spain), Guido Poli (Milano, Italy), Jean-Pierre Routy (Montreal, Canada), Christine Rouzioux (Paris, France), Vicente Soriano (Madrid, Spain), Hans-Jürgen Stellbrink (Hambourg, Germany) and Stefano Vella (Rome, Italy).
