Call for Papers: 9th International AIDS Economics Network (IAEN) pre-conference
Investing in sustainable responses to HIV and Financing the Epidemic in the post-MDGs era
The 9th International AIDS Economics Network (IAEN) pre-conference takes place 15-16 July 2016 in Durban, South Africa. The preconference will be hosted in conjunction with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, IAEN, HEARD, UNAIDS, the World Bank, Rush Foundation and Sida/Norad.
The pre-conference event serves a special purpose in bringing together economic researchers and stakeholders including Ministers of Finance and Health, along with leading activists, practitioners and scholars to generate a shared understanding of the key issues and challenges, and to develop real options for sustainable financing for AIDS.
The aim of this joint initiative is to explore innovative, country-led approaches for supporting affected countries to prioritise, sustain and lead their national investments in HIV and AIDS responses. The related research will identify ways to create, optimise, and sustain fiscal space for HIV investment domestically, as well as explore innovative national and international financing mechanisms able to leverage allocated funds.
The pre-conference precedes the International AIDS Conference to be held in Durban 18-22 July 2016.
