2. ICASA Youth e-forum

Youth planning to attend the 14th International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA) in Abuja, Nigeria, in December 2005, have been invited to participate in an email discussion forum to be launched in October 2004.

The forum intends to serve as a gathering place for youth to discuss emerging pre-conference issues and share experiences during the conference with other youth who are unable to attend in person. Some of the topics to be addressed include:

  • The challenges that have prevented youth from accessing the previous ICASAs
  • Lessons learned from the 13th ICASA Youth Forum held in Nairobi
  • Adequate representation of youth at major sessions of the conference
