UN Holds Panel Discussion Regarding Strategic AIDS Financing
June 13, 2012
"Coinciding with the 2012 General Assembly AIDS review, the Permanent Missions of Malawi and Luxembourg to the United Nations and UNAIDS organized a panel discussion to further understand the strategic investments needed for the AIDS response," a UNAIDS reports in a feature story on its webpage, adding, "The discussion brought together representatives of member states, UN organizations and civil society." According to the story, "UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibe stressed the need to focus investments where they can have greater impact"; "[p]anelists agreed that incremental yet bold steps must be taken to close the financing gap by 2015, including greater allocations from domestic and international resources"; and the "UNAIDS Investment Framework was presented as an opportunity for development partners and national governments toward developing a 'shared responsibility' agenda and maximizing value for money" (6/12).
