The International Stuttering Association, ISA in collaboration with the Speak Clear Association of Cameroon, SCAC organised the first African conference on stuttering in Douala Cameroon from the 6th to the 8th October 2005. More than 120 delegates took part at this conference and about 17 different African countries were represented during the conference. Other delegates to the conference came from Australia, USA, Germany, Uk, France, India and Switzerland. The conference was a great step for stuttering awareness in Africa. We wish to thank the ISA and other donnors who helped in organising this conference. We wish to thank Michael Sugarman and Amy Johnson who sent ISAD posters that were shared to delegates who attended the conference. It was the first time that some of the delegates heard of ISAD and promised to organise activities to mark this year's ISAD in their respectives countries and localities.
