DESCRIPTION

Historically and currently, the HIV/AIDS landscape has been borne out of politics, culture, and systems of inequity. Certain populations continue to carry the disproportionate brunt of HIV infection and its consequences. At this event, a panel of five global leaders in HIV research will identify key steps to finding a way forward to end the HIV/AIDS pandemic for all.

After their presentations, the Social Intervention Group will host a reception to celebrate the 10th anniversary of one of its most successful research initiatives to date: the Global Health Research Center of Central Asia (GHRCCA).
