Chairs: Linda Richter, South Africa

In order to reach the virtual elimination of pediatric HIV and AIDS, research on community-oriented models and approaches that work should inform the implementation of prevention of vertical transmission of HIV ("PMTCT") programs.  However, donors, policy makers, non-profits and community-based organizations often have a limited understanding of how to translate research into action, making it difficult for these groups to inform policies and programs.  Likewise, program implementers have an important role to play in informing the research agenda for community-based interventions. This moderated panel discussion will bring researchers and implementers together to discuss cutting edge research and emerging findings on community models and approaches that work as well as results and lessons learned from programs that have been informed by evidence. 

Co chairs: Linda Richter and Anja Giphart

Presentations by: CARE, The Regional Psychosocial Support Initiative, The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
