The APPG Inquiry into long-term access to HIV treatment in the developing world

The Inquiry Process

The inquiry had three stages. Firstly, in February 2009 the APPG sent out a call for evidence to all of its contacts - it received written responses from pharmaceutical companies, NGOs and international foundations, such as the Clinton AIDS Initiative. Secondly, the APPG convened a high-level round table in parliament for senior charity HIV experts and pharmaceutical company officials, MPs and Peers. A note on the meeting can be accessed here. Finally, a cross-party group of MPs and Peers visited Geneva to talk to the WHO, UNAIDS, the Global Fund for AIDS, TB and malaria, and other relevant organisations.
