ICASA 2008

The 15th International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA) is taking place December 3-7 in Dakar, Senegal. The central theme of the Conference is “Africa’s Response: face the facts”. It aims at taking stock of political commitments, unfulfilled promises, actions and practices undertaken in the fight against HIV/AIDS for the lst 20 years.

Beyond creating an atmosphere conducive to information, exchange, experiences, and evaluation of the response to the epidemic in Africa, the Conference's objectives are:
• Aim for greater coherence in the design and implementation of AIDS programs by cultivating synergy among scientific, community, and leadership approaches.
• Heighten public awareness of the continuing impact of HIV/AIDS and STIs and the importance of international solidarity in the response.
• Promote universal access to prevention, care, and treatment of HIV/AIDS and STIs by reinforcing the engagement of leaders through concrete action that integrates decision-makers from the public and private sectors.
