Assessment of Resources and Opportunities for NeuroAIDS Research (ARROW) is the only conference in Romania to address the topic of NeuroAIDS.

This second meeting continues a tradition started with the first ARROW conference from 2013. The aims of the meeting are to bring bench side NeuroAIDS research to bedside clinical HIV practice, to reflect on Western Europe & US vs. Romanian clinical models, and to bridge the gap between ID specialists involved in the care and treatment of HIV-infected patients, neurologists and psychiatrists.

During the conference, participants will be updated on recent research on HIV-associated neurological disorders from different geographic regions-US, Western Europe and Eastern Europe, and will have the opportunity to share experience with colleagues from other countries and specialties. Distinguished specialists from the US and Europe will present their work on NeuroAIDS. We would like to offer young doctors the opportunity to participate at the meeting and to also present their work. Delegates from other South East European countries are invited to join the Romanian delegates in sharing their experience in NeuroAIDS.
The meeting is organized by “Dr. Victor Babes” Hospital for Infectious and Tropical Diseases Bucharest in collaboration with the Romanian National Society for Infectious Diseases, the European AIDS Clinical Society, HIV Neurobehavioral Program- San Diego, USA, “Stefan S. Nicolau” Virology Institute, the Romanian Academy of HIV and Infectious Diseases, and JUSTRI.
The official language of the meeting is English.
