Both sessions engaged with the urgent theme of the conference: Time to deliver. The first section of the book, entitled Managing the complexity of the HIV/AIDS challenge in sub-Saharan Africa includes a selection of presentations on current trends, studies and focuses within the fight against the pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa. The second section, entitled Missing the women: Examining key challenges in policy responses to HIV/AIDS presents an in-depth paper on this subject, including recommended steps of action in taking these issues forward and a discussion in response by four panellists.
