Event Overview
Welcome message:

Virology Education is proud to announce the 6th International workshop on HIV Pediatrics, in Melbourne, Australia on 18 and 19 July 2014, preceding and endorsed by, the 20th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014).

While progress has been made in HIV research and the availability of new drugs among HIV-infected adults, there is a large group that does not profit optimally from the progress made and that is the group of infants and children infected with HIV.
Mother to child HIV transmission, particularly through breastfeeding, continues to be a problem in developing countries.
HIV treatment in infants and children differs from HIV treatment in adults, and caregivers face numerous problems when treating these patients, particularly in developing countries. These difficulties include the need for early infant diagnosis to allow early initiation of treatment, lack of data on safety and drug dosing for children using newer drugs, continued problems with availability of pediatric drug formulations, special adherence issues for children, etc.
Additionally, prevention of mother to child HIV transmission remains problematic in developing countries, both in terms of implementation of known effective interventions as well as transmission through breastfeeding.
These areas of research need more attention, and therefore we have set up a highly focused international workshop on HIV Pediatrics together with a group of experts in this field.

The 6th International Workshop on HIV Pediatrics will continue to present a unique and much needed platform for international interchange on this important topic. The workshop will be abstract-driven and, by bringing together experts from different disciplines who are involved in daily clinical care for infants and children, this meeting will offer an interactive setting where the latest developments in the field can be presented and, more importantly, discussed, reviewed and evaluated. The ultimate goal of this interchange is to cultivate better treatment methods and strategies for infants and children in developed and developing countries.
This international workshop aims to bring together virologists, pharmacologists, pediatricians, obstetricians/gynecologists and other interested researchers to present and discuss the latest developments in the field of HIV Pediatrics, Drug Development, and Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission.

We would like to encourage you to attend the 6th International Workshop on HIV Pediatricsand welcome the submission of abstracts on your research and clinical cases in this field.

Categories for abstract submission
For purposes of review and programming, abstracts are divided into topical categories. Selection of the most appropriate category is important as it determines who reviews your abstract. The Program Committee reserves the right to reassign your abstract to a more appropriate category.

We encourage you to submit your abstracts focussed on children and/or adolescents for the following Topics.
- Prevention of mother to child HIV transmission (PMTCT) (including issues for HIV-uninfected, exposed children)
- Antiretroviral treatment of pediatric HIV infection
- Complications of HIV and its treatment in children
- Co-infections in HIV-infected children
- Comprehensive pediatric HIV care
- HIV infection and adolescents (perinatally and behaviorally infected)
- Implementation science research on PMTCT and pediatric treatment programs

Young Investigators/Postdoc/MD
We are pleased to offer free registration to young investigators with an accepted abstract and a 50% discount on the registration fee for young investigators without an accepted abstract. IMPORTANT: the free registration is offered to the presenting author of the abstract only.

The applicant should:
