I am delighted to announce the 23rd Annual Conference of the British HIV Association (BHIVA), which will be held at the Arena and Convention Centre in Liverpool from 4 to 7 April 2017. Our Local Host will be Professor Anna Maria Geretti who is based at the University of Liverpool.

With an early start planned for Wednesday morning, we hope that many delegates will arrive on Tuesday evening to benefit from the Wednesday morning sessions. We recommend that you put the date in your diary and book your travel arrangements early.

A provisional programme has been prepared that includes a number of high-quality plenary sessions that will present the very latest research across a number of fields. A highlight of our programme will be oral research presentations from healthcare professionals, focusing on the ongoing work in the UK. Specialists will be invited to present on topics in HIV medicine, opportunistic infection, HIV co-infection, genito-urinary medicine and sexual health. For those who wish to submit an abstract, please click here for more information. Abstracts must be submitted online and prior to the deadline of 13 January 2017.

We are also inviting applications for case presentations for three workshops. In addition, there are a number of other scholarships and awards available at this conference. For further details, please click here. The prizes and awards for the conference will be presented at a formal awards ceremony after lunch on the Friday of conference.

For those who wish to attend the conference, we would like to encourage you to register ONLINE. The deadline for standard registration fees is 13 January 2017 and we would urge you to register early to take advantage of these rates.

Accommodation has been organised in Liverpool in collaboration with Visit Liverpool and competitive rates have been negotiated with local hotels. Once again, we would encourage all to book early as there is only a limited number of rooms and prices are likely to increase significantly nearer the time of the conference.

An exciting social programme has been arranged in Liverpool. This programme begins with a Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening and a Gala Dinner on Thursday evening.

I look forward to seeing you in Liverpool for what promises to be both an enjoyable and stimulating conference for everyone.

Chair, British HIV Association
