Innovations needed to support Treatment for All: From incremental to game-changing
Tuesday, 19 July 2016, 18h30-20h30

Treatment for all is now recommended by the WHO guidelines. The individual and public health benefits are indisputable, and yet despite progress in scaling up antiretroviral therapy, 21.2 million people living with HIV are still in need of treatment. We believe that by focusing on the use and scale up of innovative tools, the combined efforts of the HIV community - from affected populations to Ministries of Health and donors – will meet treatment needs and achieve global targets.


UNITAID at 10: Innovation in Global Health

The role of UNITAID and why it matters

Deaths from HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria have halved from 6 million in 2000.


This turnaround was no accident. It was spurred by visionary political leadership, galvanising a big increase in funding over two decades and a surge of innovation that have brought about a dramatic increase in availability of effective new treatments.
