"This report was prepared by the World Bank’s South Asia Finance and Private Sector (SASFP) unit and the South Asia Regional AIDS (SAR AIDS) team, in collaboration with the Business, Competitiveness, and Development team of the World Bank Institute (WBI) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI). The report team was led by Samuel Munzele Maimbo, Shanthi Divakaran, and Mehmet Can Atacik in collaboration with Jenny Gold. Overall guidance was provided by Mariam Claeson, Simon Bell and Djordjija Petkoski. TERI members included Swetha Dasari and Satyajeet Subramanian, under the guidance of Annapurna Vancheswaran. At various stages the team received valuable inputs from Hnin Hnin Pyne, Suneeta Singh, and Sabine Durier. The draft report benefited greatly from the review and comments received from Sujatha Rao (National AIDS Control Organization), and Gina Dallabetta (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation). The report was edited by Alison Strong and designed by James Quigley. Maria Marjorie Espiritu provided administrative support."


"This collection of case studies aims to contribute to the growing evidence on private sector engagement in the fight against HIV and AIDS and the challenges businesses are overcoming in this fight. By capturing the experiences of the local private sector, it seeks to foster a more active response from the business community and to encourage new partnership approaches from government, civil society, and development organizations to leverage the goodwill and competencies of the private sector. In a country as large as India, more active engagement of the private sector is critical to achieve the scale of intervention needed to get ahead of HIV and AIDS. We hope the lessons of these case studies will be of interest not only to private and public partners in India but also to partners in other countries in South Asia and beyond."
