The article discusses the need to develop a sustainable response to HIV/AIDS worldwide in December 2010. It says that three principles have been emerging in discussions on the worldwide response to HIV/AIDS as the funding for the global treatment of the disease becomes more constrained, namely, ownership, efficiency and sustainability. The author adds that the proliferation of initiatives comes with new challenges for recipient governments. The terms of the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief are also discussed.
