The conference theme “AIDS FREE AFRICA- Innovation, Community, and Political Leadership ” 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.

The 19th ICASA is an opportunity to renew this global commitment by drawing the world’s attention to the fact that the legacy is now under threat as a result of the global economic downturn. This year’s ICASA is an opportunity for the international community, and all Africans, to join efforts in committing to achieving an AIDS-free Africa. Given the urgency of the issue we are anticipating 7 000 -10 000 of the world’s leading scientists, policy makers, activists, PLHIV, government leaders – as well as a number of heads of state and civil society representatives – will be joining the debate on how to achieve this vision.

The conference will be chaired by  Prof. John Idoko , a  clinician  and President of the Society for AIDS in Africa (SAA) and  ICASA 2019 President . It will be co-chaired by Dr. Diane Gashumba, Minister of Health representing the Government of  Rwanda, as ICASA 2019 Vice President .

The conference will be an excellent opportunity to promote inter-sectoral achievements in the AIDS response and to strengthen the partnership among governments, civil society, and development partners.
