AIDS 2012: Strategic Use of Resources: Doing the Right Things with the Right Money Mix

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

Reduced donor funding threatens to undo successes in the global response to HIV/AIDS. The funding provided from donor countries decreased by 10% in 2009-2010. Financial commitments to the Global Fund were drastically reduced. The next steps will be crucial in determining whether the battle against HIV/AIDS can be won in the coming years. We must not only advocate for increased donor funding, but also invest wisely. This symposia focuses on investing in and building HIV programming that maximizes effectiveness and efficiency, and developing creative approaches to address the funding gaps. The panel will present the investment framework model and discuss its applicability at country level. Panelists from north and south will also share their experiences in using new, innovative financing tools for raising large scale funding from non-government sources such as the introduction of an AIDS levy and lotteries.
