From care to cure: towards the elimination of HIV Announcing the 2018 CCAS SummitCaribbean Cytometry & Analytical Society's (CCAS) Expert Summit scheduled for August 26 to 30, 2018 in Saint Lucia

June 29, 2018

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 Saint 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.

This year the summit continues to review dramatic advances in antiretroviral therapy and the public health benefits of treatment as prevention. Learn more about the 2018 summit and how you can participate.
