11th International Workshop on Co-Infection: HIV & Hepatitis
London, UK
June 11-12, 2015

The HIV & Hepatitis Co-infection workshop was initiated 11 years ago to address the rising need among clinicians and researchers for a workshop specifically focusing on these very challenging patients. With the success of antiretroviral therapy, HIV infected patients were seeing improvement in longevity, only to be challenged with the dangers and complications of their additional viral infection. Depending on the country – this was either a majority, or a significant minority of the HIV patients under care. Although HIV & Hepatitis co-infection was a small part of some major HIV conferences, the field lacked a dedicated meeting on this topic. Over the years more and more educational components were added given the growing needs of clinicians to keep up with the rapid developments. The HIV & Hepatitis Coinfection workshop still remains the only focused co-infection meeting in the field.

This year’s edition will continue to focus on developments in basic science, emerging therapies and clinical management. It will emphasize translational research and best practices in the clinical management of Hepatitis and HIV co-infection.
