Please join the U.S. Treasury Department, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and CGD for a World’s AIDS Day Event: How Can Finance Ministries Support a Sustainable HIV Response? Together, with some of the country’s leading experts, we will explore how a partnership between the U.S. Treasury Department and PEPFAR will support finance ministries to strengthen the efficiency and effectiveness of the health sector and the fight to end HIV/AIDS. This interactive discussion will address several questions: Why this partnership? How can Treasury support the global health and HIV agenda? What challenges do finance ministries currently face in their engagement in the health sector? And how do we ensure that finance ministries are integrated into structures to monitor resources and expenditures in HIV and the health sector more broadly?
