On the path to zero

October 28,  2021

This lecture will provide an overview of how countries in Europe and Central Asia are progressing toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as they pertain to HIV/AIDS. Although the lecture will highlight where progress has been made, the focus will be on where the major challenges remain and what gaps need to be addressed in order to put ourselves “on the path to zero”.

Speaker: Teymur Noori, Sweden

The final word on weight for 2021: The past and what should we do in the future?

October 29, 2021

09:00 - 09:30 BST

Weight gain following antiretroviral therapy initiation is common and may represent a "return to health" for some patients. However, others experience severe weight gain that exceeds what could reasonably be considered healthy. Simultaneously, worldwide obesity prevalence is increasing. Recently, some integrase strand transfer inhibitors and tenofovir alafenamide have been implicated in greater weight gain than other antiretroviral regimens. Mechanisms and clinical significance of any differential weight gain, however, are not well understood. This talk will review the available literature on this topic, identify gaps and propose future directions.   

Speaker: Jordan E. Lake, United States
