What international donor commitments are required to address the intersecting impacts of HIV and COVID-19 on children and adolescents, and pave the way to an AIDS-free generation? In an era when resources are constrained and needs are exacerbated, it is more important than ever to consider what would be the most impactful and cost-effective investments for achieving HIV targets and the Sustainable Development Goals. John Stover at Avenir Health will present new research identifying resourcing needs as well as historical funding trends around children and adolescents in the HIV response and what we can learn from them. This will be followed by a discussion with senior leadership from PEPFAR, the Global Fund, and other key actors.
