Aids in Africa 2025: three alternative futures

The HIV/AIDS epidemic is a history changing event. It has changed Africa's development trajectory and threatens to make development impossible. In order to better inform the decisions that must be taken today on AIDS, a major UNAIDS in Africa: scenarios for the future project has been established.

Members from the project will give the first London presentation of the results from the UNAIDS scenario building project at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Thursday 29 April.

Dr Julia Cleves and Dr Angela Wilkinson, with other members of the project team, will explore Africa's alternative futures in the year 2025. In building this vision of Africa's futures, 60 mainly African experts from all walks of life were supported by a wide array of expertise from elsewhere in their quest to develop visions of three very different futures for Africa.

Dr Julia Cleves is chief UNAIDS adviser to the AIDS in Africa: scenarios for the future project. Dr Angela Wilkinson, Shell International Ltd, is project manager of the UNAIDS in Africa project.

AIDS in Africa 2025: three alternative futures is on Thursday 29 April at 6.30pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Aldwych, LSE. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
