Summary A range of military experts, civil society representatives, academics and policymakers from 28 African governments, Regional Economic Communities, the African Union and the United Nations contributed to the findings covered in this report. It addresses prospects for a response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic within the context of African peacekeeping and regional peace and security and is based on three regional advisory group seminars that took place in Windhoek, Namibia (February 2006); Cairo, Egypt (September 2007); and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (November 2007). The meetings provided a platform for dialogue between experts engaged in African peacekeeping and their counterparts in military health medicine
