The World Health Organization HIV Department in collaboration with the HIV section of The Union is pleased to announce the TB-HIV late-breaker session.
For the second time, we also include diabetes as an increasingly relevant co-morbidity of TB, though the emphasis will be maintained on HIV/TB.
The late-breaker session includes all aspects of HIV-TB including basic and clinical science, epidemiology, health care delivery, public health, economic modelling as well as social, behavioural, psychosocial and educational aspects.
In keeping with the spirit of a late-breaker session we request that only new, innovative and significant findings that have occurred after 1 May 2018, or for which information has just become available, be submitted for the late-breaker sessions.

Abstracts may not be submitted by email or any other alternative method.
The late-breaker session will consist of eight oral presentations of ten minutes each, followed by five minutes of questions. Persons submitting the abstracts will be notified of acceptance or rejection of their abstracts by 27 August.

If you intend to request support, an indication of your desire and rationale for consideration for a travel grant must be submitted online together with the abstract. The reviewing committee will be blinded to the request for travel funds.
Submissions should include:
