The World Bank began emergency operations in Sub-Saharan Africa for HIV/AIDS in 2000, committing more than $1.6 billion in resources over the next eight years. By 2006 it became clear to Bank leadership that much had changed in the global response to HIV/AIDS, that countries and partners had entered a new phase, and that the Bank needed to rethink its approach and adjust to the new environment on the ground, which included technological and financial changes. A new approach was formulated and published in 2008 as The World Bank’s Commitment to HIV/AIDS in Africa: Our Agenda for Action, 2007–2011. The Agenda for Action was based on an extensive consultative and analytical process, which produced a wide range of background analytical papers, many of which are collected in this volume.

In The Changing HIV/AIDS Landscape: Selected Papers for the World Bank’s Agenda for Action in Africa, 2007–2011, World Bank specialists and other experts analyze aspects of the HIV challenge. Topics covered include better understanding of the epidemiological realities based on more reliable estimates and methodology; promising ways to address prevention, treatment, monitoring, and evaluation; analysis of theoretical and empirical links between HIV/AIDS and economic development; considerations of financial sustainability and economic policy; roles of the private sector and communities; and health systems aspects, including human resources for health, the links among HIV/AIDS and sexual and reproductive health, tuberculosis, and nutrition, and the importance of supply chain management. A simulation model of likely impact and effectiveness of various responses extending to 2011 completes the presentations.

The Changing HIV/AIDS Landscape is designed to contribute to the knowledge base of policy makers, program managers, researchers, stakeholders, and practitioners engaged in combating HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa.
