AIDS 2010: Providing Leadership on Critical HIV/AIDS Issues: An Appeal by and to Members of Parliament
The severe stigma attached to HIV makes it a sensitive and often politically unattractive issue to champion.
Integration of services is a key challenge in the global response to the HIV and TB epidemics.
Despite years of prevention efforts, HIV incidence has been inadequately controlled and the HIV/AIDS epidemic remains a global public health crisis.
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.
