Program Description

This course will cover the unique issues and challenges in providing HIV prevention, treatment and care due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Assessment of Needs

Rapid advances in HIV disease management require the ongoing attention of practitioners involved in HIV medicine. This course will address the implications of new information on strategies for clinical management. Information will be presented through a series of didactics developed by an expert faculty of HIV/AIDS clinicians and researchers as well as through an expert panel discussion.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Initiate and monitor HIV prevention intervention strategies, including the use of preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP), in individuals at risk for HIV infection
  • Describe the current best understanding of the interaction of HIV and COVID-19
  • Describe the current best understanding of preventing serious COVID-19 disease
  • Describe the challenges and opportunities for remote care and testing of HIV, STIs, and COVID-19
  • Apply newly available data to provide specific immunization guidance based on an individual’s immunologic status and assessed risk

Conflicts of Interest

In the interest of maintaining the independence of its continuing education 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 with ineligible companies (previously defined as “commercial interests”) that they or their spouses or partners have had within the past 24 months. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest of those parties are resolved prior to the continuing education activity being delivered. Individuals who refuse to disclose financial interests may not participate in an IAS–USA continuing education activity.

The ACCME defines ineligible companies as those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.
