The STEPS workshops, initiated by Giulio Maria Corbelli in 2014 and organised annually ahead of the main European HIV scientific events, are an opportunity to expand the dialogue among community members, researchers and other relevant stakeholders, such as peer educators, community journalists, advocates, industry partners and healthcare professionals, in order to promote the share of knowledge, information, experiences from different perspectives, as well as community engagement in research on the HIV cure and related topics.
The 8th STEPS HIV Cure Community-led Workshop took place on Sunday October 23, 2022 in Glasgow (Scotland) and was attended by around 60 different stakeholders. Coordinated by Sean Hosein and chaired by Brian West, the workshop addressed approaches for HIV cure research with Dr. Casper Rokx, provided updates on therapeutic vaccination with Prof. Jean-Daniel Lelièvre and highlighted the significance of the contributions of the community with Simon Collins and Memory Sachikonye.
The meeting report was prepared by Alain Volny-Anne and provides an overview of key messages from the workshop.
