A Conversation with Ambassador Eric Goosby

June 28, 2011 • 2:30 – 4:00 pm EDT

The UN’s High-Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS concluded with the unanimous adoption by UN member states of an ambitious set of new, time-bound targets for dramatically increasing access to HIV treatment and prevention by 2015. The U.S. played a pivotal role in shaping the meeting’s outcomes, including pledges to eliminate mother to child transmission, affirming global responsibility to move toward increasing the numbers on treatment to 15 million, and implementing dramatically more effective prevention strategies for at risk populations. What key lessons from the last ten years will the U.S. and other partners draw on as they work towards these goals?
