Kenya to host 13th International Conference on HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa
By Justus Waimiri
[ACNS source: CAPA] In September 2003, more than 8,000 delegates from all over the world will gather in Nairobi, Kenya, to discuss the AIDS pandemic.
The Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa (CAPA) has been given an opportunity to present a paper at the historic International Conference on HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa (ICASA) which will run from 21-26 September.
It is expected that CAPA's initiatives in the Provinces will be brought out at the conference, which brings together political and social leaders, scientists, funding agencies and social workers. CAPA Secretariat has urged Provinces to sponsor their AIDS coordinators to attend this important gathering.
This year's theme is "Improving Access to Care," an issue that is now receiving global attention because of the enormous strain that AIDS is presenting to medical facilities and affected communities. Participants will share experiences and latest information on care and support.
