Call for abstracts

All abstracts must focus on paediatric HIV (infants and children 0-15 years old), including the perinatal and in utero periods, studies on mother-baby pairs and HIV-exposed uninfected children. We encourage work that introduces new ideas, as well as analyses of both successes and failures. Authors are invited to submit abstracts focusing on solutions for the implementation knowledge gap.

We particularly encourage abstracts focusing on lessons learned through country programmes, project or policy implementation or management.

Abstracts for IPHASA will be considered in one or more of the following topics:

  • Topic A: Innovative HIV testing services for infants and children
  • Topic B: Prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission (PMTCT), including HIV-exposed and uninfected children
  • Topic C: Paediatric HIV care, treatment, monitoring and psychological support
  • Topic D: Optimizing care for children amid Covid-19 and other public health emergencies
  • Topic E: Community engagement, primary healthcare, strengthening of health systems and improvement of quality
