Tools & Strategies to Move Beyond 2015
The 2014 AIDS Philanthropy Summit will begin and end with a focus on integration. As we move closer to the endpoints of a number of key milestones, including the Millennium Development Goals and the U.S. National HIV/AIDS Strategy, finding synergies and intersections in funding across issues, among partners and between sectors will be key to address the disparities and injustices that caused a disease to become a pandemic, and which continue to cripple our efforts to end it.
The Summit will open with a focus on resource flows, bringing together the latest private and public funding data from the fields of HIV/AIDS, human rights, sexual and reproductive health and rights, and LGBTQ Issues. This will provide a frame for two days of concurrent and plenary sessions that will highlight both U.S. domestic and global best practices, strategies and tools designed to address a number of critical questions, including: How have funders adapted their portfolios to help end AIDS? How do we ensure that HIV/AIDS remains visible within the future development agenda? What partnerships and advocacy will ensure an effective philanthropic response to HIV/AIDS and pressing social justice issues? What are the roles of advocacy and key affected populations in investing in impact? What do funders need to know about PrEP and the future of prevention and treatment for key affected populations?
Finally, a panel of philanthropic infrastructure organization leadership will close the Summit in a dialogue focused on how we bring our movements together to address shared goals in advancing health and equity.
