The satellite symposium will be covering the current challenges facing the UK in terms of HIV prevention, care and lessons learned. It will review the potential efficiencies available through use of generics and simpler drug regimens including dual-therapy. The increasingly important role of the third sector and peer support, in a climate of ever-declining public health spending will be discussed. The session will also review the simplification of HIV monitoring including cessation of CD4 monitoring.
