AIDS 2012: Can Public-Private Partnerships Help Those who Think Globally, Act Locally?

AIDS 2012: Can Public-Private Partnerships Help Those who Think Globally, Act Locally?

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

In a rapidly changing financial environment, there are many global issues that compete for resources, and additionally, HIV is no longer perceived as an emergency by some. As a consequence, innovative funding mechanisms are eagerly being investigated. At the same time, the need for a more transparent and efficient use of the money spent calls for new global partnerships to address long-term challenges of prevention, access to care and treatment, as well as recent breakthroughs such as treatment as prevention. Yet some stakeholders have a long history of embarking on new, different and efficient ways to liaise with global leadership on establishing local-level improvements. This session will bring together some of these global leaders to discuss how, in their experience, public-private partnerships are an innovative way to bring together diverse organizations and target the same goal of efficient local programmes that, at the same time, translate into powerful advocacy tools at the global level.
