Kaiser/CSIS Forum on the 2010 International AIDS Conference
At 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 5, the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Center for Strategic and International Studies held a forum examining the major policy, research and other developments arising from the 2010 International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2010) in Vienna.
The discussion examined the implications of a leveling of donor nation support for global AIDS relief efforts during last year’s economic crises and the scientific progress reported on HIV treatment and prevention, including promising results from a microbicide clinical trial, potentially providing an important new HIV prevention tool for women. The panel provided a look ahead to the 2012 conference, to be held in Washington, DC, and also examine the new U.S. strategy for combating HIV domestically.
