The International AIDS Society (IAS), with the funding from the Rockefeller Foundation and in collaboration with the International Centre for AIDS Care and Treatment Programs (ICAP) at Columbia University, convened a pre-conference at the IAS 2009 Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention on 18 July, 2009 in Cape Town. The meeting gathered up to 100 experts, researchers, practitioners and implementers from the fields of HIV and health systems to review the results and progress from the work currently being carried out in the area of HIV and health systems strengthening by a range of international experts. The IAS-ICAP Satellite will build on the IAS 2009 Cape Town pre-conference discussions and provide an opportunity for GHC conference delegates to discuss the following critical questions. What is the evidence on the impact of HIV scale-up on broader health systems? Why - HIV can catalyze transformation of health systems? What strategies are required in leveraging the impact of HIV programming to improve non-targeted services? What examples of models of good practice? What are the options in moving forward the agenda - to accelerate research, rigorous evaluation and bridge the divide between HIV programming, other priority health conditions and health systems strengthening? Session Moderators: Dr. Wafaa El-Sadr, ICAP Director and Robin Gorna, IAS Executive Director.
