First Lady Christine Kaseba has arrived in Cape Town where she is expected to be guest of honour to the 17th International Conference on HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) in Africa (ICASA).
Dr Kaseba will be co-guest of honour with South African deputy President Kgalema Motlhanthe for the annual event to be officially opened on Saturday at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
ICASA is a biennial conference that alternates between Anglophone and Francophone African countries. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for exchange of experiences and lessons learned from around the world, when responding to HIV, AIDS, and STIs. This event is the continent’s largest gathering of HIV/AIDS activists and researchers.
