EATG Webinar: An update on PrEP in Europe
Posted on: September 14 2015, 09:59 am

FYI
--------
Meeting Description:
Welcome back to a new series of three webinars on HIV prevention topics. These webinars, hosted jointly by EATG and AVAC, are designed to update and inform the European community on scientific breakthroughs and the resulting introduction of new prevention options into European contexts.

Our first webinar will cover PrEP implementation in Europe to date. Confirmed speakers include Dr Valentina Cambiano of University College London, Daniela Rojas Castro of AIDES and Dr Anastasia Pharris of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

Dr Anastasia Pharris will look at the challenges of implementing PrEP in Europe, Valentina Cambiano will look specifically at what cost-effectiveness modelling shows about the possible cost (or savings) introducing PrEP could have for health systems, and Daniela Rojas Castro will look at informing and involving the community in advocacy for PrEP and also at informal use.
 
Save the date: The second webinar will take place on the 16th October. The third webinar will be on the 20th November. We will issue invitations with more details for these webinars nearer the time.
 
Each webinar will be 60 minutes long and chaired by Gus Cairns of EATG. Questions are welcome in advance to: gus@guscairns.com.

The NEXT webinar is on October 16, which unfortunately clashes with the next UK-CAB meeting. Aoplogies for that, folks. We plan to do it on the START trial and the implicartions for Treatment as Prevention. Unfortunately we can't make it the following week as that is the EACS conference.
Best wishes
