In a rapidly changing financial environment, there are many global issues that compete for resources, and additionally, HIV is no
longer perceived as an emergency by some. As a consequence, innovative funding mechanisms are eagerly being investigated.
At the same time, the need for a more transparent and efficient use of the money spent calls for new global
partnerships to address long-term challenges of prevention, access to care and treatment, as well as
recent breakthroughs such as treatment as prevention. Yet some stakeholders have a long history
of embarking on new, different and efficient ways to liaise with global leadership on
establishing local-level improvements. This session will bring together some of
these global leaders to discuss how, in their experience, public-private
partnerships are an innovative way to bring together diverse organizations and target the same goal of efficient local programmes that,
at the same time, translate into powerful advocacy tools at the global level.
