Preparatory Meeting on Responses to HIV/AIDS in Africa

January 24th, 2023

 Date: March 27–28, 2010
 Location: Johannesburg, South Africa

In an effort to cultivate co-funding opportunities with like-minded foundations and donors working on HIV/AIDS in Africa, TrustAfrica and the World AIDS Campaign (WAC) jointly hosted a convening in Johannesburg, South Africa, from March 27–28, 2010. The event was attended by numerous actors who share an interest in consolidating African experiences and perspectives for global decision-making in the HIV/AIDS field. The convening helped lay the groundwork for series of official preparatory meetings planned in advance of the 18th International AIDS Conference, to be held in Vienna, Austria, on July 18–23, 2010.

TrustAfrica sponsored the event through its HIV/AIDS initiative, which provides convening and mobility support to strengthen African engagement with the global HIV/AIDS establishment. The two-day gathering provided a valuable opportunity for African leaders from different levels of society to prepare for the Vienna Conference, develop mechanisms to ensure that their perspectives are heard, and craft mechanisms to bring needed policy changes at the domestic level.
