Second workshop on Incidence Estimation using Tests for Recent Infection

Posted on Wed, Jun 11 2014 08:28:00

SACEMA is hosting a second edition of the workshop on Incidence Estimation using Tests for Recent Infection. This is an intensive three day, face to face, pragmatic hands-on experience designed to familiarise data managers, health system managers, researchers, policy makers and others with the central concepts and practicalities of using markers for ‘recent' HIV infection, as increasingly available in many cohorts and cross sectional surveys, to infer HIV incidence. The workshop is set for 17-19 September 2014, at the Wallenberg Conference Centre on the Mosterdsdrift Campus where SACEMA is based.

Participation is free of charge, though contingent on an accepted application (max 24 delegates due to limited capacity in the venue). Attendees are responsible for their own travel, accommodation and other local costs. Travel costs of some participants will be covered by the World Health Organisation (WHO), based on the candidates’ profiles, country plans and needs.

The closing date for applications is 31 July 2014.  To apply, click here.   If you have difficulties with the online application process, contact: Lynnemore Scheepers (scheepersl@sun.ac.za), phone +2721 8082589, fax +2721 8082586.
