ICASA

In response to the challenges posed by the HIV/AIDS scourge in Africa, the motion for the hosting of International Conference on HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa (ICASA) on the African soil was moved by prominent African scientists participating in the second International Symposium on AIDS and Associated Cancer in Africa organized in Italy in 1987. During the fifth ICASA held in Kinshasa in 1990, the Society for AIDS in Africa (SAA) was established as the organizational custodian of ICASA.
