This comprehensive report by UNAIDS and the Lancet Commission emphasises the importance of a structural response to the epidemic and references STRIVE’s work in this context.
The report is divided into two sections:
- Defeating AIDS – the state of knowledge about the epidemic and strategies for overcoming it
- Advancing Global Health – what it means to integrate and learn from HIV within a new vision for global health
Charlotte Watts, a STRIVE research director, is one of the co-authors of the report, together with Peter Piot, Director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who provides guidance to the consortium.
