Aids Alliance

The Alliance is speaking this week at a UK parliamentary event on health in the post-2015 development framework.

The panel discussion - Health in the Post-2015 Development Framework: What next after the Millennium Development Goals? - is being jointly organised by five UK All-Party Parliamentary Groups on HIV/AIDS, Global Health, Malaria & Neglected Tropical Diseases, Population, Development & Reproductive Health and Tuberculosis. Alvaro Bermejo, Executive Director of the Alliance will be one of the respondents at the event and will be speaking on behalf of nine global health networks.

Olga Golichenko, Action for Global Health Advocacy Officer at the Alliance said: “With the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon David Cameron MP, having been appointed by the UN Secretary General as Co-Chair of the UN High Level Panel on the Post-2015 Agenda, this event will provide parliamentarians with a unique opportunity to contribute to the global debate on this issue.”

Other speakers include Lord Nigel Crisp (chair), Prof Sir Andy Haines, Dr Richard Horton (The Lancet) and Dr Titilola Banjoko. Presentations will include discussion of sustainability, universal health coverage and the perspectives of low and middle income countries.

Respondents include Dr Neil Squires, Head of Health Professions at the UK Department for International Development and Alvaro Bermejo, Executive Director of the International HIV/AIDS Alliance.

The event is organised by UK All-Party Parliamentary Groups in close cooperation with Action for Global Health, a broad European network of NGOs advocating for Europe to play a more proactive role in enabling developing countries to meet the Right to health for all and the Health Millennium Development Goals.

The Alliance and Stop AIDS Now! based in the Netherlands are partners within the the Stop AIDS Alliance, based in Brussels. Both are partners of the Action for Global Health network.
