STRIVE Research Director Charlotte Watts presented a general overview of the HIV epidemic’s evolution at a workshop hosted by DFID with the AIDS Consortium, to review the UK government Position Paper on AIDS, Towards Zero Infections.
The presentation answers key questions:
- What are the implications for HIV of the global economic context?
- How has HIV financing been affected by shifting global priorities?
- What pressing structural barriers continue to limit HIV prevention efforts and service uptake?
Watts offers examples of programmes that achieve value for money by producing multiple outcomes with a single investment.
