Pre-Conferences to the 8th SA AIDS Conference




Dear Delegate,

Thank you for attending the 8th SA AIDS Conference in Durban.

From the feedback we have received, the Conference has been a great success – we hope you agree.

There were over 2000 delegates, 200 speakers, 400 poster presentations and 70 exhibitors. This was a remarkable gathering of people who shared their voices and committed to keep fighting the long walk to HIV prevention in South Africa. The depth of talent, innovation and passion was inspiring to us.

Our local and international speakers maintained the exceptional quality of the lectures throughout. To all our speakers, both local and international, thank you for all your time and effort. Many of the speakers have consented to their presentations being made available on the website for you to download at your leisure.

Thank you to the Foundation for Professional Development for sponsoring 178 delegates as announced at the opening. We would like to extend our sincere thanks as well to all Private and Public Organisations that made it possible for many who might not have been able to attend, to take part in this important Conference.

We have all agreed to renew our prevention efforts and to keep human rights for all and equity firmly in the frame relating to what we do.

We hope you enjoyed your time in Durban and we look forward to seeing you in 2019 for the 9th SA AIDS Conference.


Warm regards


Dr Sue Goldstein                                                 
8th SA AIDS Conference Chairperson
