The first Bangkok International Symposium on HIV Medicine was launched in January 1998 with the aim to provide up-to-date information on HIV to professional heathcare workers in Thailand and surrounding countries who cannot afford to attend conferences abroad. After several virtual conferences during the COVID-19 pandemic, this is the second face-to-face meeting held in Bangkok from 17 to 19 January 2024. There were a total of six plenary sessions each morning and two afternoon workshops on Wednesday and Thursday. The symposium had expert speakers from Thailand, Australia, Taiwan, India, Malaysia, the UK, the USA, Japan, Singapore, the Philippines and Vietnam.
