The 20th International Conference on AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa (ICASA 2019), which took place from 2-7 December at the Kigali Convention Centre, Rwanda, represented a tremendous opportunity to highlight the diverse nature of the African region’s HIV epidemic and the unique response to it. In an inclusive context with a resurgence of new infections in sub-Saharan Africa, it is imperative for the continent to rely on the dynamics of recent scientific advances, on a plea that will respond to a mobilization of internal and endogenous resources. This biennial conference was a significant gathering for all working in the field of HIV, as well as leaders, people living with HIV, and others committed to ending the epidemic. It was a tremendous opportunity for researchers from around the world to share the latest scientific advances in the field of HIV, learn from one another’s expertise, and develop strategies for advancing all facets of our collective efforts to end AIDS by 2030.
This year's theme was "AIDS FREE AFRICA - Innovation, Community, and Political Leadership".
