ISHEID 2018 – Hiv – Hepatitis – Emerging Infectious Diseases

2018-05-16 12:05 - 2018-05-18 12:05 Europe/Rome
Parc Chanot Marseille France
Address: 26 Boulevard Rabatau, 13008 Marseille, Francia


Dear Friends, dear Colleagues,We are pleased to announce that the next International Symposium on HIV and Emerging Infectious Diseases ISHEID 2018 is scheduled on May 16-18, 2018 in Marseille, France.

The understanding of HIV and hepatitis infections continues to grow rapidly, especially regarding our ability to develop novel prevention and therapeutic strategies that will lead to the reduction of new infections. The burden of non-communicable diseases in HIV infected subjects implicates a multidisciplinary approach of the infection and the need of close interactions with specialists from other disciplines.

ISHEID 2018 will dedicate a privileged place to state-of-the art presentations, as well as to debates among experienced and younger investigators regarding new data and their implications.

This event will have invited lectures by European and International leaders, many oral abstract and poster presentations, and educational workshops, as well as overviews of comorbidities by specialists of each field.

It will be unique in its approach, as it will engage basic scientists and clinicians from the HIV, hepatitis and emerging infectious diseases fields, as well as leading scientists involved in comorbidities.

We look forward to seeing you in May 2018.

Christina PSOMAS


on behalf of the steering committee

    22nd International AIDS Conference

    International AIDS Society statement on the passing of Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan22nd International AIDS Conference

    International AIDS Society statement on the passing of Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan

    posted on

    The International AIDS Society mourns the passing of Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan and honours his life of service and dedication to an open society and to the fight against AIDS.

    Amsterdam, the city that Mayor van der Laan led for seven years, occupies a critical role in the history of the global fight against AIDS. It was among the first cities in the world to support needle exchange, which helped address a growing epidemic among people who inject drugs.

    In keeping with the city’s commitment to an evidence-based response to the epidemic, Amsterdam has long been a national and global centre of HIV-related research, including an ongoing trial comparing daily and intermittent use of pre-exposure antiretroviral prophylaxis. In 2018, Amsterdam will host the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018).

    “To stop the urban HIV epidemic, inclusivity is essential,” Mayor van der Laan said. His leadership vividly reflected this commitment to an open, transparent and participatory fight against HIV. Civil society and community groups play pivotal roles in the city’s response to the epidemic. Mayor van der Laan is globally renowned for his visible and unflagging commitment to the rights of LGBT people and to the broader human rights agenda.

    Under Mayor van der Laan, Amsterdam embarked on a historic effort to end its HIV epidemic. As of 2015, 94% of all people living with HIV in Amsterdam knew their HIV status and 79% of all people living with HIV achieved viral suppression. The number of new HIV diagnoses in Amsterdam has fallen by half in only five years.

    “Mayor van der Laan’s passion to address the needs of those left behind in the fight against AIDS was pivotal to our decision to host AIDS 2018 in Amsterdam,” said International AIDS Society President Linda-Gail Bekker. “We will miss him greatly and honour his commitment when we all come together next July.”

    “With the passing of Mayor van der Laan, we lose a tireless people’s champion. His empathy and unprecedented ability to connect have been hugely important for the city’s HIV response,”

    said Peter Reiss, Local Co-chair of AIDS 2018. “We are certain that the example of his leadership and the principles he so courageously championed will live on – not only in Amsterdam, but also around the world.”

    COACHiv Bagno a Ripoli (FI), 19 settembre 2018

    COACHiv: Oggi una persona HIV-positiva che inizia precocemente la terapia e vi aderisce con costanza può contare su un’aspettativa di vita simile a quella della popolazione generale.

    Tuttavia, se la ricerca scientifica ha consentito lo sviluppo di antiretrovirali altamente efficaci, ci sono una serie di altri fattori che contribuiscono al successo terapeutico, come l’aderenza al trattamento, la gestione delle comorbidità, lo sviluppo di resistenze, etc.

    In questo contesto, appare evidente l’esigenza di diffondere e sviluppare una cultura sull’HIV-counselling ed una formazione specifica per gli specialisti di Malattie Infettive che si trovano a gestire una patologia che, negli anni, ha assunto una connotazione di “patologia cronica” e  persone con HIV/AIDS che devono seguire una terapia per tutta la vita.

    Durante il corso dell’infezione è infatti probabile che venga sperimentata una vasta gamma di bisogni fisici, sociali e di problemi psicologici, non necessariamente costanti, ma che tendono a diventare più complessi e difficili da gestire.

    Il Seminario si rivolge ad un gruppo ristretto di giovani specialisti in rappresentanza dei principali Centri di Malattie Infettive a livello nazionale e nasce con l’obiettivo di sviluppare un percorso di formazione in comunicazione e counselling sanitario per la gestione delle persone con infezione HIV/AIDS per tutta la durata del percorso terapeutico con particolare riferimento ai seguenti step:

    • Comunicare post-test in caso negativo
    • Comunicare la diagnosi di sieropositività e dello stadio dell’infezione
    • Spiegare le ragioni che motivano l’inizio della terapia ART
    • Personalizzare il programma terapeutico
    • Spiegare le ragioni che conducono ad un cambio di terapia
    • Gestire il cambio di terapia
    • Gestire gli eventi avversi
    • Gestire le comorbidità
    • Gestire il paziente multiexperienced
    • Gestire le “popolazioni speciali”: tossicodipendenti, MSM, sex-workers

    Il programma scientifico prevede un ampio ricorso a sessioni interattive ed esercitazioni pratiche sviluppate attraverso role-playing atti a simulare i diversi momenti della storia clinica di un paziente HIV: i discenti verranno chiamati ad individuare le strategie di comunicazione che ritengono più idonee per affrontare la specifica situazione. Le sessioni di role-playing verranno poi commentate e discusse da Tutor Esperti.

    2018-10-28 - 2018-10-31 Tutto il giorno

    HIV Drug Therapy Glasgow 2018 Conference - 28 to 31 October 2018

    HIV Drug Therapy-

    The programme is of interest to clinical investigators from across the globe to review current research and discuss its implications for HIV management strategies.

    Although there has been steady progress in HIV drug treatment, significant challenges still remain, including persistence of elevated risk of non-AIDS morbidity, with potential for HIV and/or antiretroviral therapy (ART) as causes, paediatric and adolescent care, models of care for the ageing population, and treatment issues throughout less well-resourced parts of Europe and the rest of the world.

    The Congress is also moving into areas beyond treatment, such as prevention, with time in the programme focussed on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and issues across Europe and beyond.

    The important role of people living with HIV in treatment decisions and self-management continues to feature, and we look forward to a number of perspectives in the programme from the community.

    The programme maintains the plenary session presentation format. In addition to plenary presentations, the programme will include Keynote Lectures, the Lock Lecture, Industry Sessions and presentations based on abstracts submitted.

    The congress welcomes abstract submissions, and whilst only a small number can be accepted for oral presentation, we anticipate a sizeable display of Scientific Posters in the Congress Exhibition Hall throughout the Congress.

  • Le Malattie Infettive del migrante e del viaggiatore a Ferrara - Italy

    Le Malattie Infettive del migrante e del viaggiatore a Ferrara - Italy

    Le Malattie Infettive del migrante e del viaggiatore a Ferrara - ItalyQuesto testo è stato redatto in occasione del congresso del 2016
    Malattie Infettive del migrante: In Italia, negli ultimi vent’anni, la popolazione immigrata è cresciuta di quasi 20 volte, subendo, nell’ultimo decennio, un incremento pari a oltre il 150%, con rilevanti differenze tra le regioni.

    Al quel patrimonio di salute in dotazione all’immigrato che appariva giovane, forte, con maggiore stabilità psicologica e spirito d’iniziativa e quindi più sano (effetto migrante sano), si è contrapposto, al suo arrivo in Italia o in altri paesi ospitanti, un patrimonio che si sta dissolvendo sempre più rapidamente (effetto migrante esausto), per malessere psicologico, mancanza di lavoro e reddito, degrado abitativo, assenza di supporto familiare.

    La nuova organizzazione della vita conseguente al totale sradicamento dall’ambiente di origine e dalle proprie sicurezze è divenuta e diviene così ogni giorno fonte di stress e pericoli per la salute.

    In tale contesto, anche le Malattie Infettive del migrante, pur non preponderanti tra le patologie del migrante, rappresentano un importante focus del fenomeno migratorio, anche se spesso identificano il migrante quale untore da bonificare e da cui difenderci.

    È innegabile che l’emergere di nuove patologie infettive e la ricomparsa di altre che sembravano destinate a ridursi o addirittura destinate ad estinguersi, rappresentano argomenti più che mai attuali nella società in cui viviamo e perciò riportate all’attenzione in questa nuova edizione del Convegno.

    Il rischio di contrarre la TB è pari a 10-15 volte in più tra gli immigrati rispetto alla popolazione italiana, per la fragilità sociale legata al processo migratorio e al paese ospitante, in cui l’incidenza è assai bassa e stabile (5-7 casi/100.000 abitanti). L’infezione da HIV/AIDS, evidenzia un costante e rapido aumento nel tempo dei casi notificati in stranieri, con un tasso di incidenza di quasi 4 volte superiore a quella italiana.

    A questa si aggiungono le altre Malattie Sessualmente trasmesse facilitate anche dalle condizioni di sfruttamento sessuale cui sono sottoposti donne e uomini immigrati.

    La tutela della salute dei migranti è oramai divenuta una delle sfide in Sanità Pubblica e riguarda proprio la necessità di garantire percorsi di tutela a coloro che per vari motivi si trovano a vivere ancora ai margini del sistema, in condizioni di fragilità sociale, economica e culturale.

    Le caratteristiche interdisciplinari del convegno permetteranno ai partecipanti di interagire con tutte le professionalità presenti, stimolando la collaborazione e migliorando il network di assistenza all'utente. Giunto alla sua quinta edizione, il convegno, organizzato dal Prof. Carlo Contini, oltre a fare il punto sulla situazione socio-sanitaria dei migranti nel nostro Paese, focalizza anche gli aspetti epidemiologici e clinici delle nuove Malattie Infettive del migrante, emergenti e riemergenti anche legate ai viaggi che hanno un impatto considerevole sulla salute pubblica.
