Description: 
This paper briefly outlines some of the key challenges facing National AIDS Coordinating Authorities (NACAs) in fulfilling their roles in promoting better harmonisation and alignment of national responses to HIV AND AIDS. The paper suggests that some of the underlying problems facing NACAs stem from broader governance issues concerning the transferability of institutional models and political incentives for doing something about AIDS. Without further analysis of the political economy of AIDS responses many of the existing challenges faced by NACAs are likely to persist. This paper draws on a number of institutional reviews of NACAs undertaken by DFID's Health Resource Centre, country reviews of the application of the Three Ones principles commissioned by UNAIDS, and independent reviews of the World Bank's strategy for HIV and AIDS.
