The World Health Organization, Unitaid and the Medicines Patent Pool, together with the governments of South Africa and France and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, are honoured to invite you to a satellite symposium during the 9th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Science:
ACCELERATING ACCESS TO NEW HIV MEDICINES IN LOW- AND MIDDLE-INCOME COUNTRIES
Tuesday 25 July 2017, 18:30 to 20:30, Maillot Room
Convention Centre, 2 Place de Porte Maillot, 75017 Paris, France
A light reception will be served after the symposium
New antiretrovirals (ARVs) and formulations have the potential of revolutionising adult and paediatric HIV treatment. However, their introduction and scale-up in low- and middle-income countries can be complex and take significant time. The satellite symposium will review new ARVs and new formulations, analyse the range of different challenges that need to be overcome to ensure rapid scale-up and discuss initiatives that are contributing to accelerating development, registration and access. Particular attention will be devoted to addressing regulatory challenges and existing programmes and initiatives to facilitate and speed in-country registration and market introduction.
