This satellite session will focus on HIV/AIDS patient management with clinician perspectives on how best to access, treat and monitor. How clinicians make decisions for treatment and monitoring of treatments will be overviewed. We will explore challenges facing today’s clinician and how evolving health policies impact the patient. Within this satellite, we will also highlight gaps in consolidated HIV testing from the clinician and diagnostic laboratorial perspectives. Accurate patient results with appropriate interpretation of testing outcomes is critical for achieving UNAIDS 90-90-90 goals. Countries with high burden HIV/AIDS cases rely on health facilities delivering reliable results with timely turn around. This satellite session will feature three speakers to explore realities in patient management, applied diagnostics, and challenges facing the health care sector caring for HIV/AIDS patients.
