This World Leaders Forum program features a moderated panel discussion on the scientific and programmatic advances in confronting the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The conversation will address implications for the future, in terms of realistic expectations versus global aspirations, and will be situated in the context of the global financial crisis and other emerging health and development priorities. Panelists will discuss how they would define an ‘AIDS-Free Generation’ or ‘End of AIDS’ and how we can achieve an AIDS-Free Generation. The panel discussion will be followed by a moderated question and answer session with the audience.
