This Forum replaces the Seventh EDCTP Forum that was initially planned to take place in Dakar, Senegal from 21-24 October 2013. The event was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances when the Senegalese government was forced to host the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Heads of State summit at the venue that was meant for the EDCTP Forum.
