4th HEU Child and Adolescent Workshop

Home / Events / 4th HEU Child and Adolescent Workshop
July 22, 2018 - July 22, 2018
The International AIDS Society’s CIPHER initiative in partnership with WHO, UNICEF, PHACS and MassGeneral Hospital for Children will host the 4th HEU Child and Adolescent Workshop in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on 22 July 2018. This is an official pre-conference of the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018).

The workshop will offer an exciting half-day session of expert presentations, interactive panel discussions and open dialogue on HIV-exposed uninfected (HEU) children and adolescents.

Attendance at this pre-conference will be on a first-come first-served basis, and open only to delegates who are registered for AIDS 2018. Individuals who are interested in attending are encouraged to sign up in order to receive meeting updates. If you are not registered for AIDS 2018 and are interested in attending, or if you have any questions about the workshop, please contact the organizers at cipher@iasociety.org.

In high HIV-burden countries, up to 30% of children are now HIV exposed and uninfected but not HIV unaffected, as HEU children experience poorer outcomes than their unexposed peers.

Since 2015, the HEU Child and Adolescent Workshop has provided a unique forum for policy and scientific dialogue around the short, medium and long-term well-being of HEU children. This year, we will look beyond the biological consequences of HIV exposure to explore its implications for early childhood development policy and programming and its psychosocial impact on adolescents.
