Date Time

The aim of the Satellite is to launch the JIAS supplement on Approaches to enhance and accelerate investigation of new HIV drugs in pregnancy, discuss the strategic actions required and explore the application of this work to HIV related co-infections. The Satellite will be a combination of engaging panels with a diverse range of key stakeholders that will 1) focus on actions to effectively implement the proposed framework, 2) highlight the voices of community members who will discuss the effective and meaningful support of participants in research and 3) explore application of the proposed framework to other disease areas (STIs, viral hepatitis, malaria and TB).
