Policy Dialogue on Migration, Mobility and the UNAIDS 90:90:90 Targets in Southern Africa (19 Aug. 2016)

The relationship between population mobility, migration and HIV is one that is both complex and contested. How does contemporary population mobility mediate the HIV epidemic in southern Africa? In line with renewed calls for a focus on the structural drivers of HIV, how can responses to HIV engage with migration?

This dialogue brings together activists, researchers and policymakers working on these issues. With the recent PrEp and ‘Test & Treat’ roll-outs, this is a critical time for us to (re)focus on the least understood structural drivers of HIV – such as population mobility. Join us as we strategise on how the region can best meet the looming UNAIDS 90:90:90 targets.

Speakers will include the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) Key Populations Senior Technical Officer Lebowa Malaka, and ACMS Researcher and Writing Fellow Dr. Matthew Wilhelm-Solomon.

A more detailed programme is to follow.
