2012 PATA Conference

At the beginning of December, Keiskamma Trust was again given the unique opportunity to participate in the 8th Annual PATA (Paediatric Aids Treatment for Africa) Conference. 

This year’s conference was held in Cape Town and was attended by teams from Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  

Noluvo Xhotyeni, Dr. Leanne Brady, Magda Greyling and Kali Bechtold attended the conference on behalf of Keiskamma Trust and spent time discussing challenges in the cascade of care, the management of co-infections and issues surrounding HIV/AIDS disclosure.

The Keiskamma Trust team was also given time to plan more cutting edge practical interventions for our paediatric patients based on the latest government and international guidelines. Our Keiskamma Trust/PATA team would like to thank PATA for the privilege of to be amongst colleagues who continue to provide the highest standard of paediatric care all across Africa.
