Responding Effectively to HIV in a Changing World


Tim Brown, Senior Fellow
Research Program
East-West Center

The era of rapid expansion in international HIV resources is ending. Responding effectively to HIV in this evolving financial environment requires making better use of what’s there and working to mobilize more resources at the national level. For years, the East-West Center and its collaborators have worked to develop tools and methodologies to help improve response effectiveness and resource mobilization.

Work is currently underway to improve the underlying models used to guide policy, to update policy analysis tools to deal with new and evolving prevention technologies and to apply the models to epidemics beyond Asia. This presentation will discuss past and future modeling and policy analysis efforts at the Center with an emphasis on how the tools have evolved and where they’re going.

Tim Brown is a Senior Fellow in the Research Program at the East-West Center. He is currently working with UNAIDS, Global Fund, FHI, Futures Institute and numerous national and regional partners to develop estimation and projection tools and methodologies for global and Asia-specific application, implement more comprehensive policy analyses of low-level and concentrated HIV epidemics and effective responses to them, and support the development of improved strategic information systems for national policy analysis. He is a member of the UNAIDS Reference Group on Estimates, Modeling and Projections and serves as the HIV Focal Point of the Technical Review Panel of the Global Fund.
