Program Description

This comprehensive half-day virtual course will explore the emerging challenges in HIV medicine, including a discussion of the implication of the Randomized Trial to Prevent Vascular Events in HIV (REPRIEVE) study, extending the discussion beyond the primary data; crucial aspects of managing substance use disorder (SUD) in individuals with HIV; sexually transmitted infections (STIs) management; future of antiretroviral therapy; and the use of GLP-1 agonists for people with HIV, including diabetes, weight loss, potential treatment for addictions, and other applications being considered for research.

Assessment of Needs

Rapid advances in HIV disease management require the ongoing attention of practitioners involved in direct patient care. This course will address the implications of new information on strategies for the clinical management of HIV and address other emerging challenges in HIV medicine. Information will be presented through a mix of didactic lectures, clinically relevant cases, and expert discussions developed and led by an expert faculty of HIV/AIDS clinicians and researchers.

Learning Objectives

After participating in the activity, learners will be able to:

  • Integrate the study findings from the REPRIEVE trial into the treatment plans for adult patients with HIV
  • Initiate treatment for substance use disorder (SUD) in patients with HIV and consider alternative plans to help patients stay retained in care
  • Describe how and when to utilize doxycycline post-exposure prophylaxis (doxy-PEP) to reduce the incidence of STIs
  • Evaluate results of recent clinical trials of new or novel antiretroviral drugs in development for treatment of HIV and their potential role(s) in future clinical practice
  • Describe the current research of GLP-1 agonists therapy for people with HIV


  • Overview of the REPRIEVE study and beyond
  • Substance use disorder (SUD) management in people with HIV
  • What’s new and hot in routine STIs management
  • Future of Antiretroviral Therapy
  • GLP-1 agonists for people with HIV, including diabetes, weight loss, potential treatment for addictions, and other applications being considered for research

Conflicts of Interest

In the interest of maintaining the independence of its continuing medical education (CME) activities, the International Antiviral Society–USA (IAS–USA) requires all persons with control of educational content (eg, faculty, Scientific Leadership Board, Governance Board, and program planner) to disclose any financial relationships with ineligible companies (previously defined as “commercial interests”) that they have had within the past 24 months. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest of those parties are resolved and mitigated prior to the CME activity being delivered. Individuals who refuse to disclose financial interests may not participate in IAS–USA CME activities.  

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) defines ineligible companies as “those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.” 

IAS–USA will identify and resolve ahead of time any possible conflicts of interest that may influence CME activities with regard to exposition or conclusion. Information about financial relationships with ineligible companies for the presenters and planners/reviewers will be available in the esyllabus and in the slides prior to the presentation of educational content.
