Global Center Releases Issue Brief on Broad Benefits of HIV/AIDS Response

The Center for Global Health Policy, working in conjunction with amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, has published a new issue brief documenting how the international response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic has transformed global health financing and programming. The new report—titled “Smart Investments in AIDS and Global Health: Building on What Works” and released the week of World AIDS Day, Dec. 1—details how the rollout of HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention programs has begun to change the trajectory of the pandemic and has yielded significant benefits beyond HIV/AIDS, creating new health care infrastructure and catalyzing policy changes across the developing world.

The report comes amid signs that the U.S. government is considering a slowdown in the scale-up of global AIDS funding, a move that would have adverse impacts on both the response to HIV/AIDS and broader efforts to advance global health. The report says that policymakers now have an opportunity to leverage the success of the AIDS response by using accelerated scale-up of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment as a platform on which to build broader and more sustainable health care capacity in low- and middle-income countries.
