On May 11, 2021 a round table discussion was held at KSMU in a multidisciplinary format, dedicated to the peculiarities of the HIV course and treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic. The problem actualization is associated with the appeal of the Kursk Regional Health Committee to medical institutions and educational organizations of the region about increasing attention to the problems of the peculiarities of the HIV / AIDS course in the context of the COVID-19 coronavirus infection pandemic, clinical and dermatological manifestations of the disease, the combination of HIV infection with other infectious pathologies. The focus of attention on HIV infection is currently due to the fact that secondary immunodeficiency is constantly progressing among the population, affecting more and more people not only in Russia, but throughout the world. The infection develops slowly, provoking an increase in the body’s vulnerability to diseases of a viral and bacterial nature. In the extended clinical period of the disease, the main infection is complemented by a secondary one. Also, the urgency of the HIV problem is that today a medicine has not yet been invented that allows you to completely get rid of a dangerous ailment, therefore prevention is important. This is the reason for the thematic choice of the round table discussion by the staff of the Departments of Dermatovenereology, Infectious Diseases, Epidemiology and Pharmacology of KSMU. The conference moderator, head of the Department of Dermatovenereology of KSMU Doctor of Medical Sciences Professor L.V. Silina gave a welcoming speech and highlighted the relevance of the topic, emphasizing the need to increase attention to this problem, noting the features of dermatological manifestations in HIV-infected patients with coronavirus infection.
