From care to cure: towards the elimination of HIV #HIVcare2cure ANNOUNCING THE 2018 CCAS EXPERT SUMMIT

UNAIDS is pleased to again support the Caribbean Cytometry & Analytical Society's (CCAS) Expert Summit which will be held from August 26th to 30th, 2018 in St. Lucia. CCAS has trained HIV professionals from 23 countries and territories across the region in the diagnosis, laboratory monitoring, treatment and care of people living with HIV.

Last year's summit, "From Care to Cure: Shifting the HIV Paradigm", reached beyond the technical community to share a message of hope with the people of the Caribbean. That message? We can actually end the AIDS epidemic! So it's time the narrative about HIV, and people living with it, changed.

View video messages from CCAS Chair, Professor Clive Landis and UNAIDS Latin America and Caribbean Regional Support Team Director, Dr. César Núñez below.
