Presentation synopsis:

Major achievements in EuroSIDA : Perspective from invited expert

The talk will outline how the EuroSIDA cohort has produced key research outputs on the clinical implications of the HIV epidemic in Europe since its inception in 1994. The EuroSIDA study group has published almost 300 papers in peer-reviewed journals and informed international guidelines on best practice in HIV care and management. EuroSIDA was among the first studies to report on the dramatic and sustained declines in AIDS and mortality with HAART, the impact of TDF on renal function and on discontinuation of PCP prophylaxis after ART. A summary of key outputs in the areas of ART efficacy and adverse events, surveillance of opportunistic infections, regional European differences in HIV care and management and hepatitis co-infection will be covered
