The 3rd Ageing with HIV conference that was scheduled to be held on the 22-25 March 2018 has been postponed to 3-6 May 2018. The venue (Kyiv, Ukraine) and the overall timing (opening on Thursday night and closing Sunday noon) of the meeting however remain the same. We have decided to move the conference due to an unexpected scheduling conflict and following what we believe to be in the best interest of the attendees and sponsors. We would like to express our apologies for this sudden change and we hope that any inconvenience this date change may cause can be minimised by this early notice.
