Every year, we bring together health and social care professionals for a one-day conference, exploring the latest research and updates on paediatric HIV. We focus on a few themes, looking at key issues that affect our work supporting children and young adults who live with HIV.

The RCPCH has approved this activity for CPD in accordance with the current RCPCH CPD guidelines.
