It has been reported on more that one occasion that” business needs to see HIV as more than a bottom-line issue” – it’s also their social and corporate responsibility. This is the focus of the HIV/Aids 2007 conference highlighting how important forging partnerships between Government and business are in the fight against HIV and Aids. But still today denial continues to fuel the epidemic and far too many people still think it’s everyone else’s problem. Twenty five years after the first reports of what today is know as Aids, the magnitude of this epidemic now demands increased accountability from all stakeholders to fulfill their commitments be it financial or political.

One of the major challenges facing South Africa and Africa at hand is to gather resources and translate knowledge and experience into HIV treatment and preventions programmes. The International Quality and Productivity Center’s 3rd Annual HIV/Aids conference addresses what the consequences could be if business continues to ignore these statistics – it’s time to step up to the challenge.
