Expert Review of Anti-Infective Therapy | Year: 2011
The Canadian Association for HIV Research (CAHR) is the professional organization for HIV and AIDS research in Canada or by Canadians. The theme of CAHR 2011 was "Honoring our history, embracing our diversity", and highlighted the strengths that our diverse communities bring to the fight against HIV/AIDS, and more specifically, the important research data presented that reflect the new direction in which HIV research is focused: to regularize the daily life of the HIV-infected patients. Clinical research in the field of HIV has evolved from developing medication to ensure the patients' survival, to the present where survival is assumed and life events are investigated. This article will cover the research presented in the clinical track and will focus on two issues that are going to impact the future of HIV-infected individuals: cognitive health and child conception. © 2011 Expert Reviews Ltd.
