PharmAccess participates in ICASA 2008

Dec 12, 2008


From 3 to 7 December 2008 a delegation of PharmAccess participated in the 15th International Conference on AIDS and sexually transmitted infections in Africa (ICASA 2008) in Dakar, Senegal.

PharmAccess chairman Prof Dr Joep Lange co-chaired a satellite session on sustainable healthcare delivery in Africa. The session included presentations on a new model for healthcare delivery in Africa (Marianne Lindner, PharmAccess), HIV/AIDS workplace programs (Hans Peter Wiebing, PharmAccess) and HIV drug resistance surveillance in Africa (Saade Abdallah, International Center for Reproductive Health Kenya, researcher in PharmAccess' PASER project). In addition, professor Lange addressed a plenary session with a presentation on sustainable healthcare delivery in Africa.

During the conference international and African experts evaluated the current state of the HIV and other sexually transmitted infections epidemics assessing political commitments, scientific progress, community actions and leadership. Throughout the conference sessions the need for a focus on sexual minorities, the greater involvement of youth, religious and military leaders and the urgency to improve HIV prevention programs have been running themes. A cross-cutting issue was the need for long-term financing. This was identified as a critical aspect for human development in Africa and especially for an effective and sustainable response to AIDS.

The conference closed with a strong message: youth are essential in the response to AIDS in Africa, especially those living with HIV. The closing ceremony began with a statement delivered by Ms Souadou N'Doye, a young Senegalese. She spoke on behalf of all young Africans and urged those in attendance to ensure that young people are involved in the design of HIV programs.
