Abstract

This article suggests that the problem for knowledge in the HIV and AIDS environment is not so much as under-provision, as unequal access and the lack of exchange, synthesis and application of knowledge. It argues that knowledge in the HIV and AIDS environment is a global public good and should be made available in open access. The article considers various knowledge management interventions to ensure that knowledge is shared with others and that it is applied effectively. The article considers various knowledge management interventions to ensure that knowledge is shared with others and that it is applied effectively.
