CALL FOR COMMUNITY VILLAGE PROGRAMME PROPOSALS

The 21st edition of the International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA 2021) offers a space for the exchange of ideas and experiences, among delegates in general and key actors in particular, to respond to the epidemic so as to introduce, implement, and advocate for effective, evidence-based AIDS and STI's, Tuberculosis (TB), Malaria and emerging diseases interventions in their communities, countries and regions.

ICASA 2021, through the Community Village, avails a platform for PLHIV, Key populations, community leaders, and their partners to showcase their programmes, services, best practices and share experiences and to network so as to own, scale-up and sustain the response towards the end of AIDS. It further creates a forum to appreciate and exchange African arts and traditions in relation to AIDS and STI’s. ICASA 2021 Community Village will be fully virtual.

In addition, Community Village sessions that will take place within the networking zone in the Virtual Village area which will be accessible online, will present an opportunity to discuss important issues. The Virtual Community Village Programme will be released on 30th September 2021.
