The Western Cape Branch of the Nutrition Society of South Africa (NSSA) in partnership with the South African Medical Research Council (MRC) hosted a one-day Symposium on Nutrition and HIV / AIDS on 4th September 2008. This Symposium was held at the MRC Conference Centre in Parow, Cape Town and brought together scientists, nutritionists, dieticians, policy planners, students and other key role players. The overall aim was to forge dialogue aimed at advancing knowledge about the role of nutrition in AIDS-related disease progression and health promotion. Additionally, in the light of these updates, research questions were explored. The symposium was a huge success and received a good response with more than 60 delegates from academia, industry and the private sector.
