HIV Outcomes organises a satellite symposium at IAS 2021 on the long-term impact of COVID-19 on people living with HIV
On Tuesday 20 July 2021, HIV Outcomes Europe and HIV Outcomes Germany will organise a satellite symposium entitled ‘Supporting health-related quality of life for people living with HIV: Lessons and learnings from the COVID-19 pandemic’ at IAS 2021: 11th IAS Conference on HIV Science (18-21 July 2021).
The IAS Conference is one of the world’s most influential meetings on HIV research and its applications and is attended by world-class scientists and national and EU-level policymakers interested in the latest breakthroughs in HIV and their potential application in science and policy.
The HIV Outcomes-organised symposium will explore the longer-term impact of both COVID-19 and HIV/AIDS in order to address questions such as what can be learned from the response to the COVID-19 pandemic; may people living with HIV be additionally impacted by COVID-19 in the long-term; and what learnings from HIV treatment and care can be applied to the response to ‘long COVID’.
The panel of experts will include:
- Scientific experts and clinicians: Prof. Jeffrey Lazarus (ISGlobal, University of Barcelona), Prof. Jane Anderson (Homerton University Hospital), Prof. Hendrik Streeck (University of Bonn), Prof. Georg Behrens (Hannover Medical School).
- Patient representatives: Mario Cascio (EATG), Nikos Dedes (Positive Voice Greece), Winnie Sseruma.
- Policymakers: MP Andrew Ullmann (German Parliament), John Bowis (former UK Health Minister and European Parliament MEP).
