Where: The International Peace Institute, New York City

What: Recognizing that the health of women and children is key to progress on all development goals, it is crucial to identify and strengthen life-saving responses to HIV/AIDS which specifically target these populations. Achieving critical progress depends upon recognizing the linkage between prevention and integrated health care including sexual and reproductive health services and family planning. Young people should be involved in this effort. In this moderated panel discussion, heads of UN agencies, civil society organizations, and youth advocacy groups will draw from lessons learned and key efforts in the field to highlight the case for integration and the need to preserve and protect young people from HIV/AIDS.
