Virtual Symposium

17–18 November 2021

Globally, 1.8 million children younger than 15 years are living with HIV; 150,000 children were newly infected by HIV in 2019 and 95,000 AIDS-related deaths occurred in that year. The African continent is the epicentre for the HIV epidemic, with the biggest burden (89%) of children living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.

Symposium participants will include healthcare workers, policy makers, programme implementers, representatives of ministries of health and researchers working on paediatric HIV. By attending the symposium, you will:

  • Hear the latest global and regional updates in paediatric HIV prevention, care and treatment
  • Learn from country experiences and best practices in implementing paediatric HIV programmes
  • Equip yourself with new knowledge and skills in implementation science
