The stakeholder meeting was attended by 74 participants, including researchers from academia, representatives of product development partnerships and the pharmaceutical industry, policy makers, funding agencies and other likeminded organisations. The aim of the meeting was to identify key challenges and opportunities for EDCTP in advancing research in HIV/AIDS and the financial strategies that are required. The recommendations from the stakeholder meeting on HIV/AIDS will contribute towards the EDCTP strategic and operational business plan.

The meeting is part of a series of thematic stakeholder meetings planned to contribute to the shaping of strategy and funding approach of the second EDCTP programme. EDCTP organised meetings on neglected infectious diseases, malaria, tuberculosis and other mycobacterial infections, as well as on Research Ethics Review and Regulatory Affairs.
