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

Achieving both national HIV/AIDS goals and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) requires ownership of those goals in each country by all sectors of the community. Obtaining, engaging and utilizing the external and national resources to enable the goals to be achieved also demands strong in-country leadership and accountability. This session will present examples of in-country ownership for developing strategies and solutions for achieving national HIV goals, drawing on the perspectives of government and business sectors. The panel will also consider HIV issues relating to Most at Risk Populations (MARP’s) and civil society and offer examples of HIV modelling solutions for assessing in-country ownership for defining and measuring uses and abuses of resources for achieving country level HIV goals.
