At the same time, it empowered Africans to address and respond to the challenges posed by HIV and AIDS on the continent. The SAA envisions an HIV free Africa with capacity to confront HIV and AIDS and its consequences as well as related diseases (such as Tuberculosis and Malaria). The Society also promotes positive environment and research on HIV and related diseases. The SAA is governed by an Executive Council drawn from South, North, East, West and Central Africa. SAA partners and collaborates with AFRICASO, Society for Women against AIDS in Africa (SWAA), NAP+, the Network of Youths in Africa and it enjoys the support of the UN-System, as well as various International organizations, including the International AIDS Society (IAS).
