Institutionalising an Emergency Response: HIV/AIDS and Governance in Uganda and Senegal
This paper explains how Uganda and Senegal have made progress in their fight against HIV/AIDS. The report examines how governance in these two countries may have contributed to that progress and identifies five reasons for explaining why the international community was so late in responding to the crisis. The author concludes that the tensions involved in responding to the AIDS crisis mean that we must look at governance analytically and politically, not merely as a checklist of functions and best practices.
