Rise and shine, AIDS 2014 delegates! Join the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) on Monday, July 21, at 7:00 am in room 103 for a satellite session called “One SADC, One Vision, One Way: Walking the Talk.”

The SADC region is the epicenter of the global HIV epidemic. To date, 10 projects  financed by the HIV and AIDS Fund have been completed. The projects have, among things, increased capacity to address HIV prevention, scaled up PMTCT, and addressed access issues for key populations in SADC Member States. The knowledge generated from the projects will inform the region in developing evidence based policies/interventions and future strategies in the post 2015.

Panelists include representatives from Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Malawi. (Read complete session details.)

  • From policy to practice: SADC Member States making a difference. – D. Magure, Zimbabwe
  • Tangible results from domestically financed projects: Remembering young people, the future of tomorrow – “Needs, Challenges and Opportunities for Adolescents living with HIV in Southern Africa” – D. Cataldo, Malawi
  • Tangible results from domestically financed projects: Reaching communities – “Communicating HIV prevention: Empowering local communities to drive the HIV response in the SADC Region” – M. Chingona, Zambia
