Youth from 30 African countries will meet in Lilongwe, Malawi, November 6-8 for the Southern and Eastern Africa Youth Conference on HIV/AIDS and Reproductive Health Rights for Sustainable Development. The conference's theme is "Building Capacities for AIDS and Sexual Reproductive Health Rights Response through Science, Technology and Best Practices." Stakeholders plus 300 delegates and 50 journalists will discuss HIV/AIDS and sexual reproductive health issues affecting their nations and the region. Caleb Thole, executive director of the Global Hope Mobilisation, stated that the conference will present new scientific knowledge, offer many opportunities to the youth attendees, and have a structured dialogue on the major issues facing the global response to HIV and sexual reproductive health and rights in the Sub-Saharan Africa region.
