KSHV 2020 – 23rd International Conference on Kaposi’s Sarcoma Herpesvirus and Related Agents
White Sands Resort & Conference Centre, Jangwani Beach, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Monday, June 22 – Thursday, June 25, 2020
The conference will be followed by a dedicated networking and training workshop on Friday, June 26th to engage Africa and the next generation of researchers.
Marking the beginning of a new quarter century since the discovery of this cancer virus, KSHV 2020 will be the first in this conference series to be held in Africa, where the majority of HIV infections take place and where KS is more common than prostate cancer is in the US. The organizing committee and the participants felt that this should mark a new era in inclusiveness and global outreach such that the numerous groundbreaking discoveries about the virus can be more quickly translated to preventing the disease and treating the affected patients, for the international community of researchers to engage African researchers, clinicians and trainees, to foster collaborations in basic, translational and clinical research.
