What you'll learn in this expert session

In our lifetime, HIV has gone from a deadly disease to manageable condition, but we have a way to go yet.

Despite improvements in HIV management, we still need to do better. In this presentation, Dr Jason Ong suggests that currently we have forgotten about HIV courtesy of COVID, and because of this we are at risk of a resurgence. Worldwide, we have millions of at-risk people who still do not know their HIV status and are therefore missing out on either highly effective treatment or prevention. He will also  be outlining what we, as health professionals, can do to help reach the target of zero local transmission.
