HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE 2019 AIDS PHILANTHROPY SUMMIT – PART 2
“There’s no pill to rebuild will” – Larry Scott-Walker, ThriveSS
As 2019 marks the penultimate year of the FCAA strategic plan, we have started to reflect on the progress to date on our current plan. Established in 2015, it was the first in our history to include a specific focus on the underlying drivers of the epidemic. We realize our next plan will need to go even further. We crafted the second day of the 2019 AIDS Philanthropy Summit agenda to support that effort and focused the conversation on what it means to be an HIV funder today, as we balance the need to prioritize HIV with the need to integrate it into broader efforts to address healthcare and human rights.
This topic elicited invaluable dialogue. There’s no easy way to summarize the six engaging sessions that took place. What follows is an attempt to highlight just a few of the day’s themes; not surprisingly, all conversations pointed to the importance of community.
To read about Day 1 – which focused on the role of media and messaging in the HIV response – please see our previous post.
