The CARE programme is an educational initiative which aims to provide clinicians, scientists and other healthcare professionals working in the field of fungal infections, with an up-to-date forum for sharing the latest data and best practice in the management of fungal infections. This programme is developed through a collaboration between Gilead Sciences Europe Ltd and a Scientific Steering Committee of experts in the field of fungal infections. The CARE programme is fully funded by Gilead Sciences Europe Ltd. and was initiated in 2008. The programme consists of annual educational standalone meetings, each focusing on a specific theme relevant to current clinical practice, as well as related congress symposia, proceeding publications and additional useful resources. Please go to the Steering Committee page of this website for further details regarding the CARE Steering Committee.
