The goal of this workshop is to provide a multidisciplinary view of the current state of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) in HIV research, treatment, and disease burden both nationally and internationally, and to establish the platform for collaborative research projects between Canada and institutions leaderson the topic. During this workshop, Canadian scientists and the members of the SHIVER (Steatohepatitis in HIV Emerging Research) Network will work together to establish research priorities in the field of NASH in HIV. This workshop is the only forum that brings together an international group of academics, clinicians, community members to review the latest science and foster collaborative work towards improving understanding of this major comorbidity in people living with HIV.
