AIDS 2012: Show Me the Money: Political Commitment, Resources and Pricing

AIDS 2012: Show Me the Money: Political Commitment, Resources and Pricing

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

This session will focus on the major shift in the architecture of global development assistance since Gleneagles, with particular reference to the current crisis around the Global Fund and declining interest in some rich countries in the epidemic. This requires an attempt to engage with new funders, especially major non-western economies, who have a rather different view of how aid should be given. It will also look at the shared responsibilities of donors and recipients in mobilizing the necessary resources to meet the needs of universal access. This session will also situate AIDS in the context of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which come to an end in 2015, and what will replace them as a global framework for development. While the MDGs specifically name HIV, there is no guarantee that this will be true of whatever follows.
