Blogs Summarize Issues Discussed at CROI

March 7, 2014

The AIDS.gov blog highlights several issues discussed at the recent 2014 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI). In one post, Ronald Valdiserri, deputy assistant secretary for health for infectious diseases and director of the Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy at HHS, examines pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV (3/6). In another post, Carl Dieffenbach of NIH talks with Valdiserri about some of the scientific highlights presented at the conference (Gomez, 3/6). The Center for Global Health Policy's “Science Speaks" blog also summarizes several conference highlights. “On the day that brought an update on the Mississippi baby ... and another baby who tests HIV-negative while continuing early aggressive treatment, CROI presentations also highlighted the challenges HIV presents to birth and survival for mothers and their infants," one blog post states (Barton, 3/6). In a second post, the blog summarizes the plenary session of the conference's last day (Barton, 3/6).
