4th Africa Conference on Sexual Health and Rights

 Date: February 8–12, 2010
 Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Approximately 500 participants attended the 4th Africa Conference on Sexual Health and Rights, which sought to foster regional dialogue on sexual rights and health and inform the policies of the African Union and its component institutions. The theme this year was “Sexuality, HIV and AIDS in Africa.”

TrustAfrica provided support for seven delegates to attend the conference, enabling them to gain valuable exposure to debates, philosophies and theories related to HIV/AIDS, sexual health and rights, and sexuality. Their participation also furthered TrustAfrica’s efforts to strengthen networking around various aspects of HIV/AIDS in Africa. 

The conference acknowledged that sexual rights are an integral and inalienable component of basic human rights and that African states must be accountable to their citizens for their sexual health and rights by creating laws that protect all persons, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation, and that curb discrimination as well as sexual- and gender-based violence. The conference further concluded that youth involvement should be encouraged in leadership, gender and human rights, development programming and intervention.

Learn more about the event by reading the conference report (found in our Publications database), which highlights some of the most salient comments and perspectives and features set of reflection articles by the delegates whose attendance was funded by TrustAfrica.
