UK-CAB research and poster presentations

A study by the UK-CAB on the involvement of HIV positive advocate in research was presented as a poster at the 2018 BHIVA/BASHH conference.

UK-CAB provides community representatives involved in HIV treatment guidelines and research in the UK. Following a study presented 2017, the 2018 study asked: What impact do UK-CAB representatives on guideline writing committees and academic/clinical research study boards make?

UK-CAB also presented the study as a poster at the 4th Joint Conference of the British HIV Association (BHIVA) with the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) in Edinburgh in April, 2018.
