In February 2003, United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Kofi Annan announced his intention to establish the Commission on HIV/AIDS and Governance in Africa (CHGA). The strategic aims of CHGA are: (i) to assess the complex and long-term implications of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on government capacity and economic development in Africa, and to make African governments, their citizens, and their international partners fully aware of the scale, gravity and nature of this threat; (b) to mobilise political will amongst African governments, regional and international organisations, civil society, business and other stakeholders in support of adopting the necessary policy and programme measures in the fields of human resource capacity planning and scaling up treatment.
