AIDS 2010: Funding Global Health: Can Innovative Mechanisms Save the Day?

AIDS 2010: Funding Global Health: Can Innovative Mechanisms Save the Day?

For more information on this session, including access to speaker presentations, please see the conference Programme-at-a-Glance.

In the current context of global economic recession and contracting resources for HIV/AIDS world-wide, this session will tackle the following questions: whether new funding mechanisms can raise and secure necessary funds for global development, including health; whether policies currently pursued by other global financial actors such as the World Bank and the IMF are supportive of global health; whether disease-specific programmes are viable in the current economic climate; and what arguments HIV/AIDS activists can make to ensure that resources continue to be available for health programmes, including HIV/AIDS programmes. This session will follow a discussion-based, Davos-type format.
