This report is informed by my recent participation in the 11th ISSI conference in Madrid (Spain) in June, where we (joint paper with Bosire Onyancha) presented our full paper entitled "Is HIV / AIDs in Africa Distinct? What can we learn from an analysis of the literature". At this occasion I was privileged to bid for hosting the 13th ISSI conference in South Africa. The decision to bid for the conference was largely based on previous support and encouragement that we (together with Dr. Daisy Jacobs) received from colleagues and friends from South Africa.
