AIDS 2012: Prevention Today: What’s the Right Mix?

AIDS 2012: Prevention Today: What’s the Right Mix?

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

This session will explore how policy makers and programme managers can work with the current state of knowledge and unanswered questions about what works in HIV prevention to develop strategic, combination prevention responses. The session will address how to allocate resources most effectively given imperfect knowledge about intervention effectiveness and local and national epidemiology. It will begin with a scientific overview of what we know and do not know followed by a moderated discussion in which three programme planners who have grappled with the challenge of prevention planning will provide concrete examples from a variety of settings. A community based-advocate will provide community perspectives on these choices and the importance of involving community stakeholders in strategic decision-making.
