INTEREST (HIV) Conference

The annual INTEREST Conference is the premier scientific conference for HIV in Africa and brings together scientists involved in HIV treatment, pathogenesis, and prevention research from around the world to share pivotal findings, promote collaboration, and transfer experiences across several fields and many continents. INTEREST is co-organized by AIGHD and Academic Medical Education.


The INTEREST Conference showcases cutting-edge knowledge in the fields of HIV diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of HIV-1 infection as well as to continue to foster the building of a community of African physicians and scientists who will discuss implementing local solutions for the management of patients living with HIV-1 infection and for the prevention of HIV transmission.
