“ In fourteen countries, the contribution from each flight ticket purchase pays for one week’s treatment for a child living with HIV/AIDS” UNITAID
That is called “innovative financing”
Philippe Douste-Blazy, UNITAID’s Chairman, has always believed in this concept.
It is all about convincing countries and companies to give access to treatments all around the world.
UNITAID is leading three battles:
– Give access to HIV/AIDS treatments by reducing medicines’ costs
– Fight against Malaria
– Fight against Tuberculosis
As in previous years the Foundation hosted a dinner including 500 guests and a special one. The 1st of April the event took place at the Social ,Economic and Environmental Center in Paris.
Watch Philippe Douste-Blazy’s interview.
During the conference the Foundation announced for the first time a special agreement between two pharmaceutical giants regarding the release and the global availability of the most efficient HIV treatment called Dolutégravir.
