Emerging Issues in Today's HIV Response

A Debate Series by the World Bank & USAID

With leading donor countries emerging slowly from economic crisis, development aid flows are under heavy pressure. As a result, governments, development agencies, civil society organizations, communities of people living with HIV and AIDS, and other partners need the best evidence and knowledge available to extend their development dollars in pursuit of better results.

The World Bank's Global HIV/AIDS Program and the Office of HIV/AIDS at USAID co-hosted a debate series on the constantly changing dynamics of HIV/AIDS and our collective response. The series began in late May at the World Bank in Washington, D.C. and continued through the 2012 International Conference on AIDS. Thanks to the Global Development Learning Network's video conferencing and web-based technologies, country teams and partners in Africa and beyond have taken part in the Washington-based debate. Typically, four to six experts in the field participate in the moderated debate, followed by a panel discussion and a session of questions and answers.
