    Southern Africa is in its strongest position yet when it comes to control of the AIDS epidemic, however there are a number of major gaps that still need to be addressed and plugged. Prevention has always been the poor relative of the epidemic (one cannot ignore people already infected), and social and structural change had been the orphan of prevention. In the 8th Southern African Conference you can find the latest advances in basic sciences alongside an emphasis on how to be part of lasting change to prevent new infections.
