The 8th STEPS HIV Cure Community-led Workshop will take place on Sunday October 23, 2022, from 10:15 to 12:15 (UK time) in Glasgow (Scotland, UK) at the SEC Armadillo, Carron 1 Room.

If you are interested in knowing more about HIV cure-related research in Europe from a community perspective, you are invited to apply to the 8th community meeting focused on HIV cure strategies, therapeutic vaccines and innovative approaches for a long-term remission of HIV infection. The meeting is organised by the European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG).


For Whom?

The STEPS workshops are led by EATG and are primarily of interest for the community of people living with HIV but aims to engage with a wide range of stakeholders including researchers, healthcare professionals, industry and any other person with an interest in the scientific research for long-term drug-free remission of HIV infection and the consequent implications for the community. The workshop will be held in English.

The meeting will cover the following topics:

  • Approaches for HIV cure research.
  • Updates on upcoming trials on therapeutic vaccination.
  • The contributions of the community.


The workshop was coordinated by Sean Hosein and will be chaired by Brian West.
