GENERAL INFORMATION
The conference is hosted by the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC), in partnership with the European HIV Nursing Network (EHNN), the United Kingdom’s National HIV Nursing Association (NHIVNA), and AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF). The conference aims to provide a venue for nurses from Western and Eastern Europe to: 1) gain insights into strategies for optimizing the clinical management of people affected by and living with HIV across the prevention and care continuum; 2) discuss the state-of-the-science regarding the use of antiretroviral therapy for both therapeutic and preventative effects; and 3) access professional development opportunities focused on enhancing nurse clinical leadership roles to end AIDS as a public health threat.

PROGRAM
The conference Co-Chairs are Michelle Croston, RN, MSc (Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, England), Ian Hodgson, PhD, RN, MA (European HIV Nursing Network, London, England), and Margarita Robau, RN (Hospital Clínic Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain).
