At this event, organized by UNAIDS, ILO and UNRISD, researchers, policy makers and practitioners will discuss the interventions recommended in UNAIDS' latest report, Social Protection: Advancing the Response to HIV. The report says that responding to HIV requires comprehensive, coherent and coordinated rights-based social protection programmes, coupled with an array of responses targeted towards people living with, at risk of and affected by HIV. This discussion is part of a series of events hosted by international organizations, governments and civil society before the High-Level Meeting on Ending AIDS to be held in New York from 8-10 June 2016.

Can countries create and enforce trade rules that respect other global commitments to sustainable and inclusive human well-being? How can the international community rebuild confidence in international food markets and the rules that govern them? How should governments reform multilateral trade rules to limit future risks to food security while ensuring everybody’s food needs are met in a sustainable way?
