Critical Challenges in the Third Decade of the HIV/AIDS Epidemic
On June 5, 2001, the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Ford Foundation jointly sponsored a daylong Symposium to mark the 20th year of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and focus on the key challenges facing the United States at home and abroad in the epidemic's third decade. This policy brief continues the process begun that day by highlighting some of the challenges and approaches to addressing the epidemic, with a focus on the U.S. role. The policy brief examines domestic and global challenges. It was developed as part of AIDS at 20: A National Policy Initiative, a joint initiative of the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Ford Foundation designed to help inform the U.S. response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
