Group 3: Research and Product Development

Limited resources for research and development of infectious disease solutions need to be focused on prioritized problems closer to their source, guided by the enlightened agendas of those regions most at risk. This can be accomplished by changing traditional paradigms of product development and introducing new partners, collaborations and technologies.

Group 4: Prevention Modalities

There remains an absence of effective interventions focused on preventing the transmission of infectious diseases, in particular with respect to HIV and child exploitation, which is disturbingly prevalent in many areas of the world. There is a need to explore this and other new prevention modalities, including male circumcision, and to consider behavioral, legal and other innovative approaches to addressing these topics.

"Accordia summit participants are inspiring examples of leaders across all sectors who have stepped forward to confront the devastating effects of infectious disease in Africa," said Dr. Warner Greene, Director and Senior Investigator, Gladstone Institute of Virology and Immunology, and President, Accordia Global Health Foundation. "We hope this summit will identify innovative and cooperative approaches for building and sustaining healthcare capacity in this region of the world."
