IAS Educational Fund Meetings – Malaysia

The IAS Educational Fund meeting – Overcoming Challenges in HIV with Science, Innovation and Collaborations in Southeast Asia – was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 4 and 5 October 2019. The meeting was organized by the International AIDS Society (IAS) in collaboration with the Centre of Excellence for Research in AIDS (CERiA), which is part of the Medical Centre of the University of Malaya (UMMC), Kuala Lumpur, and fully endorsed by the Ministry of Health of Malaysia, the Malaysian Society of HIV Medicine, the University of Malaya and the Malaysian AIDS Council.

During this two-day workshop, more than 160 HIV professionals in the HIV response in the Southeast Asian region gathered to discuss the latest science, as well as innovative ways forward for treatment and prevention.

Key topics discussed included key messages from the 10th IAS Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2019) in Mexico City, including differentiated service delivery models in key and vulnerable populations, PrEP implementation and STIs, ARV regimens, HIV self-testing willingness, the HIV treatment cascade in key populations, and chemsex interventions.
