AFRICA: High-level HIV/AIDS meeting seeks solutions

[This report does not necessarily reflect the views of the United Nations]

JOHANNESBURG, 10 March (PLUSNEWS) - A conference held in London this week under the banner, "Making the Money Work", focused on improving the channelling of HIV/AIDS funding to countries most in need.

The meeting, co-hosted by UNAIDS and representatives from France, Britain and the US, was chaired by UNAIDS executive director Peter Piot to "ensure countries can reverse the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS".

Three main areas of discussion included the effective delivery of HIV/AIDS programmes in developing countries, securing the necessary funding for increased international action against the disease, and determining the division of responsibility among international groups.

During his address to the gathering, Piot said: "In order to get ahead of the epidemic, the international community must work together to scale up the AIDS response. This means maximising donor coordination, mobilising new resources, and ensuring that the available funds for AIDS are spent effectively on the ground. [This] meeting will come up with ways to make the money work."
