AACSS Conferences

Affirm that African women are powerful in themselves, yet in response to the HIV and AIDS pandemic a lack of resources has limited their ability to come together. The basic objectives of AACSS have to do with overcoming these limits to self-and mutual-empowerment.

AACSS conferences help to enable their participants:

  • To transform attitudes that they believe impede effective responses to HIV and AIDS,
  • To gain an increased knowledge of HIV and AIDS issues,
  • To develop personal and communal plans of action,
  • To create mutual support by networking after the conference.
