At the close of the 2nd Asia Pacific AIDS & Co-infections Conference (APACC) that took place from 1 to 3 June 2017 in Hong Kong, faculty members Dr. Charles Boucher and Dr. Patrick Chung-Ki Li quickly presented a few slides showing the breakdown of who attended the conference.

An interesting point (I think) is that as a nurse, many presenters stated that to instigate new ways of working, reaching vulnerable populations and rolling out PrEP, nurses would be the backbone of the work force. Yet, only 5% of the attendees were nurses. To get nurses onboard and understand why they are expected to step up and lead these innovations, more need to attend conferences like #APACC2017.
