ICASA 2005 launched its official brand this week as part of its countdown to the conference to be held in Abuja, Nigeria, from 5 to 9 December 2005. The brand has new images reflecting the 14th ICASA theme - HIV/AIDS and the Family - and ICASA's brand colours of red and green.

3. African Youth HIV/AIDS Best Practices Handbook

Development Partnership International ActALIVE and the International Federation of Medical Students Associations invite youth-led HIV/AIDS projects throughout Africa to be included in the first ever African Youth HIV/AIDS Best Practices Handbook.

This initiative is part of a broader project, through which the organisations involved wish to gather data on the work of young people in the region, for the purpose of showcasing outstanding initiatives at major international events and in decision-making forums; providing support and encouragement for these and other youth-led efforts; and creating a centralised body of information that can be tapped for a variety of purposes, from greater youth networking and collaboration to policy formulation at national, regional and international levels.

Approximately 100 projects will be profiled, and it is hoped that the handbook will be presented at the 14th International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa, at Abuja, Nigeria.

All projects submitted for consideration must be youth-led, have been carried out within the last three years, and should demonstrate a positive impact on the community where they are operational, and/or on the issue/s they were created to address. Information requested includes a short abstract on the project, timeline, number of beneficiaries, team and sustainability.

The deadline for submissions is 15 October 2005.
