[e-drug] AIDS 2012 Event on Supply and Demand of HIV/AIDS Commodities

E-DRUG: AIDS 2012 Event on Supply and Demand of HIV/AIDS Commodities
-----------------------------------------------------------------

USAID and PFSCM are co-hosting a satellite session at the International
AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C.: "Supply and Demand of HIV/AIDS
Commodities: Can the Global Market and National Supply Chains Support
Continued Rapid Scale-up of HIV/AIDS Treatment?"

Date and Time: Thursday, July 26, 2012 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Location:  Walter E. Washington Conference Center, Mini Room 2

Description
Can supply chains meet the challenge of 15 x 15? The international
community has agreed to this goal of universal access.  If donors
increase funding to provide treatment to 15 million, can a sufficient
volume of ARVs and other commodities be manufactured and distributed in
target countries?  Will national supply chains be able to receive and
distribute many times the current volumes?  

Co-moderators:
- Joel Kuritsky, Medical Advisor, SCMS Division, Office of
HIV/AIDS, USAID
- David Jamieson, Director of Global Partnerships, Partnership for
Supply Chain Management
