Thirty years into the AIDS epidemic, and 10 years since the landmark UN General Assembly Special Session
(UNGASS) on HIV/AIDS, the world came together again to review progress and chart the future course of the global AIDS response at the 2011 UN General Assembly High Level Meeting on AIDS from 8-10 June 2011 in New York. See attached brochure for more information.
As part of this series of high level meetings, FCAA and EFG hosted a funders' roundtable on June 7th from 4-6 pm.
A panel of private funders reflected on the UN Secretary General’s recent report on the status of the global AIIDS pandemic and UN recommendations on “mobilizing for impact” in a renewed fight against AIDS, including UN calls to:
Harness the energy of young people for an HIV prevention revolution;
- Revitalize the push towards achieving universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support by 2015;
- Work with countries to make HIV programmes more cost effective, efficient and sustainable;
- Promote the health, human rights and dignity of women and girls; and
- Ensure mutual accountability in the AIDS response to translate commitments into action.
