Coordination of policy for the HIV/AIDS epidemic response: comparative analysis


The article discusses the theoretical basis for the study of the issue of coordination of policy for the HIV/AIDS epidemic response and the comparison of Ukrainian and foreign practices on coordinating councils’ activities on these issues are presented. The existing coordination mechanisms do not meet the political traditions and practices of most countries. Recommendations on the establishment of more effective functioning of the coordination councils are suggested.
