The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity on the evolving challenges of managing HIV disease as part of a nationwide continuing medical education (CME) effort for physicians. There are many factors that place youth at an elevated risk for HIV as they experience a critical period of development and transition.

Learning Objectives

On completion of this webinar, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the behavioral, biological, and socioeconomic vulnerabilities that place youth at risk for HIV infection, as well as the subpopulations of youth most at risk
  • List and employ at least 3 strategies for optimizing the HIV care cascade among HIV+ youth

Conflicts of Interest

In the interest of maintaining the independence of its CME activities, and in accordance with the policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the IAS–USA requires all persons with control of content (eg, faculty, IAS–USA Board members, and program staff) to disclose any financial relationships that they or their spouses or partners have had with commercial companies within the past 12 months. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest of those parties are resolved prior to the CME activity being delivered. Individuals who refuse to disclose financial interests may not participate in an IAS–USA CME activity.

The ACCME defines a commercial interest as “any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests – unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined commercial interest.”

Dr Futterman has received service grants awarded to her institution from Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Updated 02/04/19)
