European HIV Hepatitis Co-infection (EHHC) Conference
10–11 December 2015, QEII Centre, London, UK
 
Registration Now Open: Early registration deadline: 19 October 2015

As you may know, the British HIV Association (BHIVA) in collaboration with ANRS, BASL, BVHG, DAIG, GEHEP and SIMIT held the ‘Five Nations Conference on HIV and Hepatitis’ in London on 9–10 December 2014. This two-day annual conference, which has now been rebranded as the ‘European HIV Hepatitis Co-infection (EHHC) Conference’, has aimed to bring together those directly involved in the care of HIV-infected patients co-infected with hepatitis as well as those who have a clinical or research interest in the epidemiology, natural history or basic science of viral hepatitis.
 
A number of eminent speakers have agreed to come to London to share their latest research. We would like to thank all our speakers for their invaluable contribution in helping to make the conference, what we hope will be, a great success.
 
The conference will be hosted at the QEII Centre in Westminster, London. The centre is situated in the shadow of Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, London Eye and Westminster Abbey and is served by outstanding transport links providing easy access to everything London has to offer. The conference centre is located within an hour’s transfer from five surrounding international airports.
Please begin to make plans to be in attendance for both days of this important event. The conference will run for one and a half days and be preceded by a half-day clinical course for non-consultants

Just a note to say that alongside the conference there is also a couple of pre-conference courses that community registrants can go to - one for nurses and one for junior doctors. If you want a less technical introduction to the issues around hepatitis in HIV then then the nursing course was good last year.  This year it will include sessions on interpreting blood test results and patients experience of having HCV.
