The full commitment of the business community is an integral component of the response to AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and deeper engagement in the fight against these devastating diseases is in the sector’s best interest. A number of corporations have launched innovative and effective programs to help combat these diseases, and their experiences were explored in a half-day symposium on June 28, 2005, that brought together leaders from the corporate, nonprofit, philanthropic, and governmental sectors in Japan and around the world. General trends in corporate involvement were analyzed by speakers from a number of organizations that promote and facilitate corporate engagement. Meanwhile, panelists from businesses that are making notable contributions related the backgrounds, motivations, and content of their corporations’ initiatives, and discussed ways for businesses to make greater contributions in this common fight.
