TB-HIV and diabetes late-breaker session

Submissions open until 5 August

The World Health Organization HIV Department in collaboration with the HIV section of The Union is pleased to announce the TB-HIV late-breaker session.

For the second time, we also include diabetes as an increasingly relevant co-morbidity of TB, though the emphasis will be maintained on HIV/TB.

The late-breaker session includes all aspects of HIV-TB including basic and clinical science, epidemiology, health care delivery, public health, economic modelling as well as social, behavioural, psychosocial and educational aspects.

A small number of travel grants are available for presenters of accepted abstracts who require funding to attend the conference. If you intend to request support, an indication of your desire and rationale for consideration for a travel grant must be submitted online together with the abstract. The reviewing committee will be blinded to the request for travel funds.

Late-breaker abstract submissions are open until 5 August.

The late-breaker session will consist of eight oral presentations of ten minutes each, followed by five minutes of questions. Persons submitting the abstracts will be notified of acceptance or rejection of their abstracts by 27 August.

Submissions should include:

  • Confirmation that the work has not been previously submitted for consideration to the general portion of The Union World Conference
  • The date by which the work and analysis was mostly completed
  • A request and rationale for travel support to be uploaded online if so desired
  • The address, phone and e-mail address where the author may be contacted
