The International Conference on AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa (ICASA) is a major international AIDS conference which takes place in Africa. It is a biennial conference which alternates between Anglophone and Francophone African countries. ICASA has been organized since 1990 to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS through an African continent free of HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria and the debilitating effects which these diseases have on our communities, where there is no stigma and discrimination against PLHIV and their families, and where social justice and equity to accessing treatment prevails. So far ICASA has been hosted in (14) fourteen countries with more than 100,000 direct participants. The last ICASA was hosted in Harare, Zimbabwe in 2015.
The ICASA organizers desirous to get an identity to brand the upcoming 19th ICASA which will be held in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, 4th – 9th December, 2017, launched a contest for a creative logo for the conference. The ICASA organizers, offered $1000 for the best designer of the logo.
The contest was open to all Africa countries. However, artistes mainly PLHIV and key populations were the most encouraged to participate in this contest.

The SAA permanent Secretariat/ICASA International secretariat shortlisted 10 best proposals of ICASA logo and presented them at the ICASA 2017 1st International Steering Committee meeting held on 25-26 November, 2016 in Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire, Côte-d’Ivoire after which the final selection was made.
