One of the best HIV medicine conferences in Asia Pacific, the Bangkok International Symposium brings together experts in the HIV field from all over the world. The next Symposium will take place from 14-16 January 2015.
The Symposium Series training workshops are centered on care management and treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the training workshop is to provide in-depth knowledge on HIV care and treatment to medical doctors, nurses, pharmacists and healthcare practitioners.
