PATA 2020 Summit Invitation

The Board of Directors and staff at the Paediatric-Adolescent Treatment Africa (PATA) are pleased to invite you to the PATA 2020 Summit from Wednesday 11 November to Friday 13 November 2020.

The PATA 2020 Summit, titled Breakthrough and Build Back together! is a collaborative forum that will bring together health providers and stakeholders united in a renewed call to action to accelerate efforts to end AIDS in children and adolescents.

In response to travel restrictions and various COVID-related lockdown regulations, the PATA 2020 Summit will be both physical and virtual. A centralised virtual platform (hub) will be linked and connected to several regional in-country physical meetings (main and satellite spokes).

The PATA 2020 Summit will provide a linking and learning platform to come together online and offline to examine progress, identify gaps and barriers, exchange knowledge, highlight and share game-changing strategies and service delivery frameworks.

Main and satellite spokes are physical meetings organized to ensure that in-country partners and frontline health providers can effectively participate, meet safely, and be provided opportunity for regional exchange through access to the virtual hub.

More than just an event, The PATA 2020 Summit is unique and unlike other summits in the HIV sector, it is not abstract driven, has no registration fee for successful applicants, features programming that provides a reality check on services delivery, and is focused on home-grown solutions that are driven by frontline health providers.

For detailed information on the summit, please see concept note.
