SUSA41 Efficiency and Effectiveness (E2): Impact and Way Forward for E2 in the Global HIV and AIDS Response
  Non-Commercial Satellite
Venue: Room 111-112
Time: 20.07.2014, 11:15 - 13:15
Chair: Mahesh Mahalingam, UNAIDS

Organizer: Futures Group/Health Policy Project (HPP), International Aids Society (IAS), International AIDS Economic Network (IAEN), World Bank
Given constrained funding for the HIV and AIDS response, donors and local governments have stressed the need to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness (E2) of HIV/AIDS programs to achieve the greatest impact. Has the work on E2 informed financial resource allocation of external and domestic funding for HIV/AIDS programs? Has the work on E2 improved implementation efficiency of HIV/AIDS programs by reducing cost while maintaining quality and coverage? Has the work on E2 expanded the evidence base for effective HIV/AIDS interventions that increase the quality and coverage of programs? The USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP), in collaboration with IAS and IAEN, addresses these questions in an assessment of the E2 global landscape. The satellite will consist of four presentations from the IAS, IAEN, World Bank and HPP and will conclude with a panel discussion of the impact and prognosis for E2.
