Summits and Forums

PATA Summits have been convened annually since 2005, offering a powerful platform and valuable opportunity for health providers to share their experiences and engage in peer-to-peer learning to improve paediatric and adolescent HIV treatment and service delivery in sub-Saharan Africa. These forums are the foundation to growing the PATA network and expanding our scope of work. PATA Summits ‘link and learn’ approach is central to PATA’s mission to mobilise, strengthen and build resilience in a network of frontline health providers, facilities and communities supporting paediatric and adolescent HIV service delivery.

The PATA network has been a springboard in developing a range of incubation projects that inform the development and distribution of promising paediatric and adolescent models in HIV prevention, treatment and care. Through PATA’s unique reach across health facilities in sub-Saharan Africa, the network connects frontline health providers to global policy platforms, working groups and consortium, as part of a collective effort to reach global targets and improve paediatric and adolescent outcomes.
