UNICEF Ambassador Sarah Jessica Parker will introduce the UNICEF HIV/AIDS Innovation Fund at the Global Business Coalition’s 10th Anniversary Conference on June 2.

The Fund brings together top HIV experts with diverse business and philanthropic leaders to invest in high-impact, low cost interventions and technologies that have the potential to change the face of the AIDS pandemic.

Co-sponsored by UNICEF and the Global Business Coalition, the Fund will leverage UNICEF’s presence, expertise and vast network of partners across 150 developing countries to source the best ideas; draw on the collective experience and assets of industry experts convened by the GBC to help shape and refine those ideas; and provide rapid, flexible resources to incubate them during the early stages of their life cycle.

During the initial five-year phase beginning 2011, the UNICEF HIV/AIDS Innovation Fund aims to deploy $4-5 million annually into those projects with the greatest potential to break through bottlenecks, achieve scale and meaningfully contribute towards the goal of achieving an HIV-free generation by 2015.
