Burnet Institute was pleased to host Associate Professor David Wilson for a Director’s Seminar, Achieving maximal health impact with available HIV resources: balancing science, economics and politics.

While global financial resources for HIV substantially increased in the first decade of the new millennium, they are now steady or declining despite the requirement to cover more people than ever with antiretroviral therapy and maintain effective HIV prevention services.

In this context there is need to make better use of existing funds or do more with less.

Associate Professor Wilson presented a global perspective and country case studies along with a description of the latest analytical tools for achieving maximum impact with the funding available for a country’s HIV response and plan for sustainability.

His presentation was enthusiastically received by staff from Burnet’s Centres for Population Health, Biomedical Research, and International Health, including Director and CEO Professor Brendan Crabb in a packed Burnet Boardroom.

Associate Professor Wilson is the Head of the Disease Modelling and Financing Program at the Kirby Institute and an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow.

He leads the UNSW and World Bank Optima team which conducts modelling, health economic and resource allocation studies for governments, as well as regional and global health agencies and international donors.
