 Society for AIDS in Africa

The Society for AIDS in Africa (SAA) was established in Kinshasa in October 1990 during the 5th International Conference on AIDS and Associated Cancers in Africa, a precursor to the International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA).

The formation of SAA with the support of the World Health Organization (WHO) brought to an end, the practice of organizing the International Conference on AIDS in Africa, outside the African continent. At the same time, it empowered Africans to address and respond to the challenges posed by HIV/AIDS on the continent.

The SAA envisions an HIV free Africa with capacity to confront HIV/AIDS and its consequences as well as its related diseases (such as Tuberculosis and Malaria). The Society also promotes positive environment and research on HIV and its related diseases. The SAA is governed by an Executive Council drawn from South, North, East, West and Central Africa.

SAA partners and collaborates with range of NGOs and it enjoys the support of the UN-System, as well as various International organizations, including the International AIDS Society (IAS). The Society for AIDS in Africa, is the organizer of ICASA. The next ICASA will be organized in Kigali, Rwanda, from 3rd to 7th   December 2019.
