Friday Roundup: Recent Research on HIV/AIDS

LTD Editors's picture

Washington, DC is buzzing this week with the XIX International AIDS Conference. Heavy-hitters and celebrities like US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, World Bank President Jim Young Kim, philanthropist Bill Gates and singer Elton John are all participating, and the range of topics being covered include the relationship between AIDS treatment and health systems as well as procurement and corruption issues.

The World Bank, USAID, PEPFAR and The Lancet hosted a debate on July 23, with the motion ‘Continued AIDS investment by donors and governments is a sound investment, even in a resource-constrained environment.’  The sparks flew, with none of the distinguished debaters pulling their punches.

Our contribution in the past few years has stemmed from the vast amount of research we have undertaken and data  we have collected.  Here are links to some of our more recent works:
