The 17th World Congress of the International Union against Sexually Transmitted Infections (IUSTI) took place at the Palmeraie Conference Center in Marrakech, Morocco, from 9th to 12th May 2016. This Congress was the second IUSTI meeting in Africa, after Cape Town, South Africa, in 2009.

The theme was "Health impacts of new STI/HIV technologies and Vaccines" and the congress programme focused on both classical sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV, from clinical to public health, behavioural and laboratory aspects.

The conference attracted more than 330 International delegates from 28 countries including 15 African countries. The Congress also saw the participation, for the first time, of delegates from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

The programme covered several aspects of STIs and HIV, spreading over six plenary lectures, six mini-plenaries, 10 symposia, 15 oral sessions, three workshops, and two debates as shown in the link below:
