8th SA Aids Conference held in Durban
​The 8th South African Aids onference was held at the International
Convention Centre from 13 to 15 June under the theme: “The long
walk to prevention: Every voice counts”.
OVER 2 500 delegates attended the 8th South African Aids Conference which was hosted by eThekwini Municipality from 13 to 15 June. It was held at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International

Convention Centre under the theme: “The long walk to prevention: Every voice counts”. EThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede, who also Chairs the City’s Aids Committee, said the conference enabled the Municipality to have an integrated and holistic approach to dealing with issues related to HIV/Aids. “It is crucial for eThekwini to create a platform to deliberate on HIV/Aids issues at a local level to pursue the objectives set out by the South African National AIDS Council.

These include providing leadership and developing policies and strategies to fight the epidemic,” said Mayor Gumede. Conference Chairperson Dr Sue Goldstein said the conference theme was critical. “Prevention and education opens spaces for people to challenge how issues are responded to and how social justice and rights are being eroded or protected,” said Goldstein.

She added that prevention remains the cornerstone of any effective response to HIV with the many social, political and cultural issues that runs alongside it. The conference also explored the latest advances in basic sciences alongside an emphasis on how to be part of lasting change to prevent new infections. A number of plenary sessions, workshops and track sessions were held. There were also interactive exhibitions and poster viewings for delegates.
