    Since his appointment as national Health Minister in May 2009, Dr. Motsoaledi has provided new vision and leadership in moving the South African government to more effectively manage the HIV/AIDS epidemic—setting in place clear goals for achieving universal treatment access, embracing new prevention technologies and expanding social mobilization in combating HIV/AIDS. Dr. Motsoaledi will talk about these efforts, as well as the systems-wide management and financing reforms underway to achieve greater affordability, improved efficiency and better health outcomes.

    Dr. Motsoaledi’s presentation will be followed by discussion lead by a distinguished panel:

    Ambassador Eric Goosby, US Global AIDS Coordinator
    Jennifer Cooke, Director of the Africa Program, CSIS

    Discussion will be moderated by Kaiser Senior Vice President Dr. Michael Sinclair.
