Mohammed Al Amoudi Supports Major AIDS Conference

Mohammed Hussein Al Amoudi will make US$15 million available to the organisers of the Sixteenth International Conference on AIDS and STI (Sexually Transmitted Infections) in Africa (ICASA 2011) to be held from December 4th through to December 8th, 2011.

The funds donated will be used to help prepare the Millennium Hall in Addis Ababa and provide the full infrastructure for the conference, including all the necessary materials, an exhibition centre, a delegate village, a media centre and 17 halls enabling 14 sessions and workshops to be held simultaneously.

The amount attributable to ICASA 2011, added to $6m provided to the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) between 2007 and 2010, has provided a total AIDS awareness and treatment philanthropic contribution of over $20m.
