AIDS 2012: Beyond MDG 6: HIV and Chronic NCDs: Integrating Health Systems Toward Universal Health Coverage

AIDS 2012: Beyond MDG 6: HIV and Chronic NCDs: Integrating Health Systems Toward Universal Health Coverage

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

While building on the momentum of the UN Summit in September 2011, this satellite recognizes that PLHIV both treated and untreated, suffer from co-morbidities due to chronic NCDS. This satellite will examine the role of chronic NCDs and their link with HIV. More specifically, we will review lessons learned from the AIDS Decade of the 2000s and determine what lessons can be leveraged and applied beyond 2015 in the context of an emerging global burden of chronic NCDs. We will also discuss how we can use this current momentum to re-engineer the primary health care model so that it leads to sustainable, cost-efficient, comprehensive and integrated health systems that facilitate the achievement of universal health coverage for chronic NCDs in lower and middle income countries. Partners include: MSH; Government of Tanzania; Sir George Alleyne (Pan American Health Organization); AMPATH; Harvard and University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
