Our committed paediatric HIV partners, participated in the International Conference on AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa (ICASA) 2023 in Harare, Zimbabwe. The partners showcased groundbreaking work, innovative approaches, and impactful interventions focusing on paediatric and adolescent HIV care. During the conference, partner organisations conducted interactive sessions addressing age-appropriate disclosure methods, community-paediatric HIV interventions, and best practices for young mothers living with HIV in Uganda. The partners collectively aimed to address the unique challenges faced by children and adolescents living with HIV, presenting evidence-based programs and policies that have positively impacted lives across Nigeria and Uganda.

The ICASA conference serves as a global platform for partners to share insights, strategies, and experiences, engaging with policymakers, healthcare professionals, researchers, and advocates. The 2023 conference theme, ‘Let communities lead,’ emphasized grassroots initiatives and community-driven responses in addressing HIV/AIDS through a multi-sectoral approach. The partners demonstrated resilience and progress, showcasing the power of collaboration and unwavering dedication. ICASA 2023 reinforced the commitment to building a world where every child can grow up free from the burdens of HIV, emphasizing collaboration, knowledge exchange, and collective action for an HIV-free generation.
