The debate will take place on during the night of 23 & 24 July, 2012, from 12:30 am to 2:30 am, live from the World Bank headquarters.
As growing evidence attests to the impact of the global economic crisis on development aid, it has become more important to allocate and utilize development assistance as efficiently and effectively as possible. Governments, development agencies, civil society organizations, communities of people living with HIV/AIDS, and others need the best evidence and knowledge available to make development dollars go further.
The event will feature a panel of renowned thought leaders in HIV/AIDS and development economics, who will debate for and against the motion: “Continued AIDS investments by donors and governments is a sound investment, even in a resource-constrained environment.”
