Description: 
The purpose of the 'AIDS 2008 Impact Report: Evidence to Action' is to inform the global response to HIV using the evidence, lessons learned, and debates from the XVII International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2008), held in Mexico City from 3-8 August 2008. The 'AIDS 2008 Impact Report' is intended to be used by all stakeholders to support implementation of evidence-based policy and programming that will bring us closer to the goal of universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. It is divided into five major sections: 1. Epidemiology (Establishing better epidemiological information, Inadequate focus on vulnerable populations), 2. Basic, clinical and prevention research (Residual viremia and the limits of HIV disease management, When to start antiretroviral therapy?, Task-shifting to widen access to care and treatment, Risk of resistance in high-prevalence countries, Prevention research), 3. Social, economic and political science, and policy research (Prioritizing the elimination of stigma and discrimination, Combination prevention, Research on, for, and by marginalized communities, Global HIV /AIDS initiatives and health systems strengthening, Health and human rights), 4. Regional focus (Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Latin America, Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa), 5. Tracking progress and strengthening accountability.
