Dear all,

Update on the 10 th SA AIDS Conference date

Thank you to all who have taken an interest in the conference and have submitted abstracts, requests for scholarships and to host satellite sessions.

In the light of the predicted 3 rd COVID-19 wave due in June the Organizing Committee has decided that:

  •  The conference will be postponed to 2022 when we hope we will be able to host an in-person conference in Durban.

  • There will be a two-day virtual mini-conference on 09 and 10 June 2021 themed: HIV and COVID-19 

The virtual conference will be held in the evenings from 16:00 – 20:00 over 2 days. We will invite renown local, regional, and international speakers from the HIV community to discuss and debate the impact COVID-19 has had on the South African and regional HIV epidemic. The speakers will reflect on progress made in the HIV response in the context of COVID-19, the impact the pandemic has had on people living with HIV and on HIV/TB service delivery. We will also touch on COVID-19 vaccines in people living with HIV. 

We look forward to you attending both the virtual conference in June and the in-person conference in 2022. Please continue to submit abstracts for the conference in 2022, we will soon update you on new in-person conference dates and abstract submission deadlines.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact the Secretariat or myself should you have any queries or concerns.
