Know Your Resources: How to use funding data to strengthen your messages in the critical push for investing in the end of AIDS

Co-Chairs: Emily Donaldson, United States; Sarah Hamilton, United States

Achieving universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support by 2015 is estimated to cost US $22 billion. This target, part of a comprehensive global investment framework, would prevent 12.2 million infections and 7.4 million deaths by 2020. To implement this framework – and ultimately reverse the epidemic – we need to know how much money is currently being disbursed for AIDS. A number of organisations track resources for HIV, tuberculosis and hepatitis in order to measure progress and understand the funding environment.

This session aims to demonstrate existing resource tracking methods, improve comprehension of funding analyses and inform global advocates’ resource mobilisation. By understanding the flow of resources, advocates can better target their efforts, bring donors to the table, and strategise a way towards making an AIDS-free generation a reality. A comprehensive guide on current resource tracking efforts underway will be created and launched at the session.

In-Country Ownership Solutions for Leadership and Accountability

Chair: Dr. Badara Samb, Switzerland


  • R. Shah, United States
  • K. Admasu, Ethiopia
  • A. Pramualratna, Thailand
  • Y. Simon, Trinidad and Tobago
  • T. Guthrie, South Africa: “HIV Modelling for In-Country Ownership Solutions” 

Achieving both national HIV/AIDS goals and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) requires ownership of those goals in each country by all sectors of the community. Obtaining, engaging and utilising the external and national resources to enable the goals to be achieved also demands strong in-country leadership and accountability. This session will present examples of in-country ownership for developing strategies and solutions for achieving national HIV goals, drawing on the perspectives of government and business sectors. The panel will also consider HIV issues relating to Most at Risk Populations (MARP’s) and civil society and offer examples of HIV modelling solutions for assessing in-country ownership for defining and measuring uses and abuses of resources for achieving country level HIV goals.

Holding Government Accountable: Lessons from the Field for the Next Era of the AIDS Response

Moderator: Cynthia Eyakuze, USA


  • Nhlanhla Ndlovu – South Africa (CEGAA): South Africa: Partnering with the Treatment Action Campaign to Monitor Local Government

  • Sasha Volgina – Russian Federation
  • Morolake Odetoyinbo - Nigeria
  • David Munar – United States

Civil society has played a critical role in driving and shaping the AIDS response since the epidemic's beginning; mobilising communities and people living with HIV to hold government and other sectors accountable and achieving important policy change.

Today, civil society faces perhaps one of its greatest challenges: how to hold governments accountable in an era of fiscal constraint, particularly as new science demonstrates the ability to significantly alter the future course of the epidemic if the response is scaled up now. This symposia session will profile the efforts of civil society to hold government accountable in four different country settings: South Africa, Russia, Nigeria and the United States. These experiences will help to set up an interactive and action-oriented discussion designed to identify key lessons, strategies and opportunities for the response moving forward.
