Why has IPHASA 2023 been shifted from an in-person to a virtual format?
Due to circumstances that are beyond our control, we are no longer able to convene IPHASA 2023 in Harare, Zimbabwe, on 1 and 2 December 2023. After careful consideration, we decided to hold the symposium virtually from 12 to 14 December 2023 rather than cancel it. This is because we believe that IPHASA 2023 will do much to close the huge gaps between paediatric HIV evidence and implementation on the African continent.
Have the dates of IPHASA 2023 changed?
Yes. IPHASA 2023 will take place virtually on 12 to 14 December 2023 from 15:00-18:00 CAT; 16:00-19:00 EAT; 13:00-16:00 UTC; 08:00-11:00 EST each day. The symposium will now take place over three half days.
