Debate: Global Health Funding for HIV/AIDS – Liveblog & Webcast

As growing evidence attests to the impact of the global economic crisis on development aid, it has become more important to allocate and utilize development assistance as efficiently and effectively as possible. Governments, development agencies, civil society organizations, communities of people living with HIV/AIDS, and others need the best evidence and knowledge available to make development dollars go further.

As part of the XIX International AIDS Conference, held in Washington, D.C., from July 22-27, 2012, the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)/PEPFAR and The Lancet will co-host a debate on global health funding allocations for HIV/AIDS, on Monday, July 23, 2012, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, at World Bank headquarters.

The event will feature a panel of renowned thought leaders in HIV/AIDS and development economics, who will debate for and against the motion: “Continued AIDS investments by donors and governments is a sound investment, even in a resource-constrained environment.”

Participants will include:
- Jim Yong Kim | President, World Bank Group (opening remarks)
- Rajiv Shah | Administrator, USAID (opening remarks)
- Festus Mogae | Former President of Botswana (opening remarks)

Richard Horton | Editor, The Lancet (moderator)

RESULTS: the power to end poverty

Join Jeffrey Sachs at the RESULTS/RESULTS Educational Fund International Conference to End Poverty and AIDS in July!

By combining the collective, powerful voices of volunteer advocates in over 100 communities throughout the U.S. with solid research and oversight of U.S. anti-poverty efforts at home and abroad, we have been changing our government’s priorities as well as people’s lives.

Annually, RESULTS’ citizen activists from around the globe gather together for the RESULTS International Conference (IC) in Washington, D.C. The IC offers inspiring, high-level speakers; educational workshops on effective poverty solutions; advocacy skills trainings; and the experience of lobbying on Capitol Hill. All of this happens in an atmosphere of passion, collaboration, support, and fun.
