Over the past two decades, much has been achieved in advancing global health. Progress has been noted in addressing the HIV epidemic maternal and child mortality as well as in strengthening health systems around the world. Yet, much more remains to be done in these areas. At the same time, new health threats loom large — from the consequences of climate change, aging, violence, displacement, environmental degradation, and emerging infections.

Join leading experts as they discuss successes to date in the global HIV response, how these were achieved, and what more needs to be done. And engage in a conversation about emerging global health issues and how we can take the lessons learned thus far to guide our work moving ahead.
