Online PR News – 01-June-2011 – – Neuilly-sur-Seine, FR, May 30, 2011 -- The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) has been ravaging the planet ever since it first infused itself into the body of the first human prey. Amongst the numerous efforts initiated towards fighting this deadly virus, ISHEID (International Symposium HIV & Emerging Infectious Diseases) was one of the first. After about twenty years since its first conference, it has grown in its reach and reputation. Thanks to the discouraging economic scenario of the present world, there are newer challenges to be answered in fighting AIDS. The next AIDS 2012 conference announced to be held in Marseilles, France, is a timely measure and is capable of bringing about a revolution.
While the conference aims to profit from the original ideas and vast experiences of its reputed participants, budding medical enthusiasts too can gain much from this conference. ISHEID is a CME (Continuing Medical Activity) for medical professionals, accredited by the EACCME (European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Activity. Along with the knowledge and experiences shared on this forum, the participants are also eligible for European external CME credits. Moreover, though the AIDS 2012 conference announced specific focus on AIDS, it also involves discussions about other emergent infectious diseases like avian flu and viral hepatitis.
Recently, the HIV AIDS ISHEID 2012 conference announced Alain Lafeuillade as its chairperson and a stellar assembly as its steering and scientific committee members. Participating biologists and clinicians can take part in the presentations and the numerous workshops in order to broaden their perspective. Thanks to ISHIED's reputation of providing a easy-to-communicate, warm and open atmosphere, pathbreaking ideas and proposals are expected to flood the event.
Participants have to first register for the event by paying a small fee. Those interested also can submit abstracts of their presentations between September 16, 2011 and January 20, 2012. The AIDS 2012 conference announced its intention to discuss not only the medical aspects of the infection but also the human rights aspect of it. Therefore, fresh views on improving access to health care services for patients are welcome. Also, as Jose Gatell, one of the steering committee members observed, there has been a remarkable progress in terms of reducing the amount of medication necessary and the possible side effects of these medicines. However, with over 1.8 million people succumbing to the disease annually, there is much more to be done. In short, the ISHIED conference is a slow yet sure step towards progress, in the truest sense of the word.
