As part of its European HIV prevention work, NAM is collaborating with AVAC to provide a series of webinars (conference calls with accompanying slides) to train and inform prevention advocates and anyone interested in the newest developments in HIV prevention technology.

This webinar will discuss the development of the European community consensus statement on treatment as prevention; a set of principles intended to guide policy on access to antiretroviral therapy for prevention purposes for people with HIV, which will be launched in January.

This eighth webinar is entitled:

Treatment as prevention perspectives in Europe: an update

Time and date: 1pm UK time, Tuesday 10 December (2pm CET)
