International Workshop on HIV Transmission 2020 [Virtual]

The main objective of this meeting is to provide a forum for basic scientists, clinicians, virologists, epidemiologists and public health officials to present and to discuss the various aspects of the transmission of HIV. The ultimate goal of the meeting is the integration of efforts from all relevant disciplines in order to constrain the spread of (drug-resistant) HIV. We are sure the present workshop will help to achieve this goal.
