- Bethesda, Maryland, US (from 7 to 8 March)
- Miami, Florida, US (from 17 to 18 March)

2. Priorities in AIDS Care and Treatment Conference, 19 - 22 April 2005

This conference, at the Misty Hills Hotel and Conference Centre outside Johannesburg, is the first to focus on the issues of providing comprehensive HIV and AIDS care and treatment in South Africa.

It will provide an update on comprehensive care for people living with HIV and AIDS, including scientific advances and programme implementation.

The topics will cover all aspects of AIDS care, from early treatment to palliative care and psychosocial support, and will give doctors, senior nurses, and managers of AIDS programmes and AIDS service organisations the information they need to develop their care strategies.

Made possible by funding from the US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, the conference is expected to attract expert South African speakers.
