In collaboration with ECDC and ESCMID, the ESCV
offers a number of travel grants to selected members to attend the ECDC
Public Health Observership Programme in Stockholm, Sweden, in September of each year. For details, keep an eye on this website or follow @ESCVirology on twitter.
Observership Visit provides a unique insight into Public Health epidemiology and allows the awardees to interact with experienced ECDC
staff, EUPHEM recruits and colleagues from around the world with an interest in
infection. The aims and
objectives of the ECDC Observer visit can be found on the ECDC webpage describing last year's program.

Now available on line: The Update on HIV
Diagnostics, a dedicated Supplement to the Journal of Clinical Virology.
The Supplement edited By Richard L. Hodinka and Christine Ginocchio contains a
review of the highlights of the 2016 HIV Diagnostics Conference and six
key papers presented at the meeting. Important issues discussed
include performance characteristics of laboratory and CLIA-waived tests,
including the use of alternative specimen types, information on new
tests used for multiplexing, incidence assays, and the need for
simplified nucleic acid based tests.
The 19th annual ESCV meeting just held in September in Lisbon, Portugal, was a huge success.
Abstracts of the meeting can still be found in a Supplement of the J Clinical Virology. There is also a (very nice) flip book version.
