The organizers of the forthcoming “International Symposium on HIV and Emerging Infectious Diseases” (ISHEID) to be held in Marseilles (France), 23-25 May 2012, are pleased to announce the production of a Hip Hop song that will embody the main objectives of this meeting.

A renowned UK singer kindly agreed to dedicate one of his songs to this cause.

In 2012, for the first time, the ISHEID will tackle “The search of an HIV cure” as main theme.

More than 33 million people are currently infected by HIV worldwide, and more than 7,000 new cases of infection occur daily. In the absence of an effective vaccine, this pandemic threatens our world. Moreover, access to antiretroviral therapy is limited in poor-resource areas, even if these therapies cannot eradicate HIV and must be taken life-long.

For 2 years now, major advances in understanding the mechanisms of HIV persistence in antiretroviral-treated patients have been achieved. New strategies towards an HIV cure are on the horizon and almost ready to be tested in clinical trials.

This next edition of the ISHEID will make a priority helping scientists and patients to move forward an HIV cure. Top international specialists will gather in Marseilles for 3 days to reach this goal.

Dan Bull, a renowned UK singer, kindly accepted to dedicate one of his songs to this cause.
