Message from the Chairman
Prof. Emeritus Praphan Phanuphak
Dear friends and colleagues,
On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to Bangkok for the 15th Bangkok International Symposium on HIV Medicine 2012, held from Wednesday 18 to Friday 20 January 2012 at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre. As many of you are already aware, the HIV Netherlands Australia Thailand Research Collaboration holds an International Bangkok Symposium on HIV Medicine in January every year.
The key objective of the annual Bangkok International Symposium on HIV Medicine is to provide health care workers and members of the HIV-infected and affected community from Thailand and all over the world with a comprehensive review of the management of HIV infection and opportunistic infections, efforts to improve access to therapy as well as the latest updates on research into HIV treatments and vaccines.
The symposium also aims to stimulate debate through a series of panel discussions on issues such as access to care and the cost of ARV in developing countries. In the last 5 years, over 2,500 participants from Asia Pacific, Europe and the America have attended the symposium.
An expert faculty of speakers from Thailand, Asia, Australia, Europe and USA presents a comprehensive review of current HIV management. World class international and local speakers present plenary sessions and facilitate interactive workshops.
We would like to ensure you that Thailand is ready in every way required for holding this Symposium. Facilities and services are world-class standard. There are many exotic tourist attractions representing Thailand’s history and unique culture which that certainly please you throughout your stay. We also hope that you will not only receive knowledge in HIV management through the trainings, but also a warm welcome from Thai people. We wish you a very enjoyable stay in Bangkok.
Please mark these dates in your diary and share the information with your colleagues.
Prof. Emeritus Praphan Phanuphak, M.D., Ph.D
Co-director of HIV-NAT
