Conference Programme
The scientific programme of the 5th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention aims to provide new insights into HIV disease development, biomedical prevention and clinical care that can lead to novel research directions and help translate theoretical advances into clinical and prevention practice. The Scientific Programme Committee is dedicated to ensuring that the content will be relevant to today’s questions, including addressing the challenges of expanding treatment and prevention in resource-limited settings. An additional priority is ensuring that the presentations focus on the latest HIV science and its practical applications for public and individual health in the context of where the epidemic will be in 2009.

The abstract-driven programme will feature state-of-the-art basic, clinical and prevention science, as well as a new focus on operations research. The Basic Sciences Track will focus on virology, immunology, pathogenesis and pre-clinical research into drugs and vaccines. The Clinical Sciences Track will cover the spectrum from treatment and low cost monitoring in resource-limited settings to new treatments, strategies and advanced technology topics. The Biomedical Prevention Track focuses on strategies for preventing HIV transmission that have a biomedical basis, such as vaccines, microbicides, chemoprophylaxis and substitution therapy for drug dependence. New to IAS 2009, the Operations Research Track will focus on applied research and other analyses designed to improve the quality and implementation of HIV programmes and policy. The conference will feature daily plenary sessions, abstract and non-abstract driven sessions.
