2023 Manchester Forum

The 5th International Forum on HIV and Rehabilitation Research: Ageing with HIV in an Uncertain World will take place in-person on Saturday May 20, 2023 at the University of Manchester in Manchester, UK.

Registration is FREE and lunch is provided to all attendees.

The Forum aims are:

  • To facilitate knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE) in the field of HIV and rehabilitation research (ageing, tele-rehabilitation interventions), clinical practice and service delivery, among people living with HIV, researchers, clinicians on HIV, and representatives of community organizations internationally;
  • To establish new research and clinical partnerships in HIV and ageing internationally;
  • To foster mentorship and training in HIV and ageing research; and
  • To identify new and emerging issues and research priorities in rehabilitation interventions for people ageing with HIV.

The Forum is open to community members living with HIV, researchers, clinicians, students and trainees, with an interest in HIV, ageing, frailty, multiple long-term conditions, rehabilitation, neurocognitive difficulties and HIV, mindfulness, and/or tele-health.

We have a brilliant line-up of speakers ready to share their knowledge and expertise. Please see our Program at a Glance below for details. Feel free to also check out our digital program: https://bit.ly/3zeDWZG
