Economics Reference Group - Eighth Meeting

The eighth meeting of the ERG was held in Geneva on 7 and 8 March 2011. The meeting focused on the issue of efficiency and effectiveness of the global AIDS response and was divided into three sessions. The first session was used as a forum for donors like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, PEPFAR and the Global Fund to present their work on the topic and seek feedback from participants. The second technical session included evidence on the comparative efficiency of different national HIV/AIDS programmes and a review of available HIV-related costs and cost drivers among other issues. The final part of the meeting looked at questions of allocative efficiency and included discussions on a number of modeling exercises relating to resource allocation and the economic impact of HIV and ARTs on a mining workforce.

Some of the work presented at the meeting was UNAIDS/World Bank funded. Along with the fruitful discussions that it spurred, this research will be used to inform policy-makers within these two organisations on recommended directions, both programmatic and financial, of current and future HIV/AIDS programmes and policies. Attendance of the meeting was striking, as was the support demonstrated by high-level figures like UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibe, who briefly joined the meeting to emphasise the increasing relevance of the Economics Reference Group for the HIV/AIDS community.
