Strategy for the Second Wave: Learning from India's Experience with HIV/AIDS
November 1, 2004
The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) hosted a conference on September 9, 2004, entitled "Strategy for the Second Wave: Learning from India's Experience with HIV/AIDS". Its principal purpose was to analyze the lessons learned so far from India's fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic and start thinking about how that experience can help the United States and the international community develop an effective strategy toward other second-wave countries. Participants included political figures and representatives from the health care industry in India and representatives of international and nongovernment organizations (NGOs) that have been active in the fight against HIV/AIDS, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as other U.S.-based experts.
