I am highly elated to be elected to serve as Chair and President of the executive board of the Society for AIDS in Africa (SAA) for the next four years. It is a privilege for me and my honourable members to steer the affairs of SAA in the next four years. Having been given the mantle on the 24th of March 2022, we are grateful to our predecessors Prof. John Idoko, the past President, all board members, partners, zonal constituents, SAA Coordinator/ICASA Director and the entire Secretariat.

The Society for AIDS in Africa is a Pan-African non-profit organisation which was founded in 1989 by a group of African scientists who shared a common vision to end the HIV and AIDS pandemic in Africa and mitigate the impact of other emerging diseases in Africa.
