HIV Working Group

In February 2017, CSIS convened a high-level working group to discuss critical issues affecting continued U.S. leadership on HIV and progress toward control of the pandemic. The working group consists of experts in academia, implementation, policy, research, and industry examining the evolution of the U.S. response; the Global Fund-PEPFAR relationship; sustainability and country ownership; and the needs of adolescent girls and young women.
