AACSS Conferences

AACSS conferences help to enable their participants

Gain an increased knowledge of HIV and AIDS issues

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.
