HIV-NAT has held the Bangkok International Symposium on HIV Medicine annually since 1998. It provides the latest advances in HIV medicine to professional healthcare workers in the Asia–Pacific region. This year’s symposium (the 24th) was held virtually, from 19 to 21 January 2022. There were a total of 27 sessions divided over 3 days. The Symposium started in the afternoon following industrial symposia and ended at 18:00. Various topics were presented by experts from Australia, India, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, UK and USA. COVID-19 has changed healthcare delivery and artificial intelligence is changing medical practice so sessions on these topics were included in the symposium.

Key words: artificial intelligence, adolescents/youths, HIV prevention, infectious diseases, men who have sex with men (MSM), resource-limited settings, sexually transmitted infections, transgender women (TGW)
