The conference theme “Africa: Ending AIDS-delivering differently” engages the whole continent and all stakeholders in the post SDG framework, where sustainability of the response in reaching 90, 90, 90 of UNAIDS will not be possible if human rights are not key priority for a new vision of leadership in the context of strengthening the application of science-based evidence.
