The next New Zealand HIV update is scheduled for Friday 31st May 2019. This year’s meeting has a potpourri of topics with something for everyone: Complications of Antiretrovirals, Care of Women Living with HIV, Behaviour and the Epidemiology of HIV and STIs in New Zealand. 

We are thrilled to welcome Prof Judith Currier, the Division Chief for Infectious Diseases, UCLA and the Associate Director of the UCLA Center for Clinical AIDS Research and Education. Dr. Currier is trained both in Infectious Diseases and Clinical Epidemiology and her research interests include the treatment and prevention of complications of antiretroviral therapy, gender-related issues in HIV therapy and the evaluation of antiretroviral treatment strategies in resource limited settings.

We are also fortunate to have Dr Bridget Haire who is a Senior Research Fellow at the Kirby Institute, Sydney. She has been President of Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations (AFAO) and a member of the Ministerial Advisory Committee on Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections. Her research interests include ethical issues with an emphasis on underserved populations, gender and sexual and reproductive health. To complement the two international speakers we have superb local and national speakers and know the day will be interesting and useful if not overwhelming!
