Clinical Care Options HIV marks its sixth year as the official partner of the International AIDS Society (IAS) for online scientific analysis for IAS-convened conferences. Edward King, MA, Vice President of Editorial for Clinical Care Options, and I have led this initiative and are excited to be here as international investigators and policy makers explore how to turn the tide of the international epidemic.

As the International AIDS Conference returns to the United States for the first time in more than two decades, we find ourselves in the midst of rapid changes in the field. Our expert faculty members, Susan Buchbinder, MD; Joel E. Gallant, MD, MPH; Jean B. Nachega, MD, PhD; and Ian M. Sanne, MBBCH, FCP(SA), have carefully reviewed the scientific programme and identified the most clinically significant presentations across a wide range of topics, including clinical trials of antiretroviral agents, prevention, primary infection, cost-effectiveness of therapy, and health disparities in receiving services. During the week, our Web site rolled out Expert Highlights (audio podcasts by faculty summarizing and commenting on data), Capsule Summaries (expertly synopsized data from specific scientific reports), and a comprehensive PowerPoint slideset summarizing the selected studies. Later, the slideset will be reposted with added analysis from Drs. Gallant and Sanne included as slidenotes and certified for continuing education credit. More...

Kaiser Family Foundation Offers Live and Archived Webcast Coverage of Conference Sessions.

By Jackie Judd, Vice President and Executive Producer, Multimedia, Kaiser Family Foundation

For the last decade, the Kaiser Family Foundation has partnered with the International AIDS Society in bringing the biennial International AIDS Conference to a global audience. Starting in 2002 in Barcelona – and continuing in Bangkok, Toronto, Mexico City and Vienna – we have webcast hundreds of events from the conferences. Now, we will do the same as the conference comes back to the United States for the first time in 22 years.

The Foundation does this because we are strongly committed to serving as a source of information on national and global health issues including, of course, HIV/AIDS which is a core issue for us. Webcasting allows us to vastly extend the reach of the conference to people around the world who otherwise would not have access to these sessions. In addition to webcasting events during the week of the conference, many sessions will be packaged later and sent to organizations and communities around the world that have a continuing interest in learning about what was said and done at the conference. More...

Reporting from the International AIDS Conference

Posted 12 juillet 2012, 08:15 , by Guest

By Ian Hodgson, International HIV/AIDS Alliance Key Correspondent

This year, the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012) comes back to the US after 22 years of absence.

From what began as a meeting of like-minded scientists in 1985, the International AIDS Conference has grown to not only the biggest conference on HIV, but also the largest global event covering a single topic. For citizen journalists, with deadlines to meet, readers to inform, and editors to please, the sheer size of the conference and the plethora of available information can be bewildering. With an appropriate strategy in place, however, it is possible to make sense of this rollercoaster ride, producing informed and effective materials. And learn a lot, too. More...
