ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

 
The conference is a space for us to work towards our vision and mission:
Our Vision
Accountability International’s vision is a world where there is accountability for the lives, human rights and wellbeing of all persons, across all spheres of society.
Our Mission
As a watchdog ourselves, our mission is to amplify the diverse voices of marginalised communities, by ensuring that the voices of the community lead all our work. We collaborate with marginalized communities to actively exercise their role as watchdog and hold various leaders accountable. We do this by enabling increased transparency, promoting dialogue and supporting action as catalysts for increased accountability.
Objectives
1. Discuss trends in accountability, governance and identify and examine the common threads/trends that have always existed and that are emerging.
2. Highlight and share successful and unsuccessful accountability lessons regionally and globally.
3. For participants to learn from other partners what strategies are being used to increase accountability.
4. Foster partnerships between the participants in order to inspire and enhance effective and sustained work on accountability.
5. Rethink how civil society deals with accountability, and interrogate new lenses, new strategies and new opportunities.
6. Expand the capacity and network of participants.
Who should attend?
This conference is for human rights defenders who work in civil society, government, media, business, United Nations bodies and academia who are interested to learn more about Accountability around HIV, health and human rights in Africa.
