The 9th STEPS HIV Cure Community-led Workshop will take place on Wednesday, 18 October 2023, from 10:00 to 12:30 (CET) in Warsaw (Poland) at the EXPO XXI (Prądzyńskiego 12/14), SONATA Room. This year the theme of our workshop is “STEPS towards a cure for everyone – dedicated to Giulio Maria Corbelli”.
If you are interested in knowing more about HIV cure-related research in Europe from a community perspective, you are invited to join us for the 9th community meeting focused on HIV cure strategies, therapeutic vaccines and innovative approaches for a long-term remission of HIV infection. The meeting, hosted by the 19th European AIDS Conference (#EACS2023), is organised by the European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG).
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.
