Besides pre-scheduled seminars and discussion, Elena Pinchuk had personal meetings with Peter Piot, Executive Director of the UNAIDS and Trevor Neilson, Executive Director of the Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS.

Discussing HIV/AIDS situation in Ukraine, Peter Piot said that additional resources are needed to overcome HIV escalation and emphasized the important role of the private sector involvement.

Attracting business recourses was the key topic at the meeting with Trevor Neilson as well. Executive director of the GBC on HIV/AIDS agreed that Ukraine has unleashed potential for business leaders to demonstrate the effectiveness of the private sector approaches to the fight against AIDS. Trevor Neilson also expressed the hope that the fact that the only Eastern European member-company of the GBC, Interpipe, is based in Ukraine, might cause an impact at the rise of social activity among regional business leaders.  Elena Pinchuk and Trevor Neilson decided to strengthen cooperation between ANTIAIDS Foundation and Global Business Coalition in order to make Ukraine a model for business leaders in Eastern Europe and Asia in the near future.

At the reception, organized by the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, Elena Pinchuk discussed worldwide situation with HIV/AIDS with the U-2 frontman, Bono, who is famous for his activity in the fight against AIDS.

Strong business orientation of the WEF and its members, gave unique opportunity to discuss social issues with the private sector representatives. During the Forum Elena Pinchuk took part in discussions with representatives of WPP, Ranbaxy, LaFarge and Merck.

Elena Pinchuk described her participation at the Global Health Initiative as a perfect opportunity to exchange experience, to learn the latest international trends in the fight against AIDS and to attract attention of the business leaders towards the situation with HIV/AISD in Ukraine.
