A Global Perspective on the HIV/AIDS Pandemic

Monday, March 18, 6 pm
102/104 Health Innovation Center

The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a major cause of death worldwide. While resource-rich countries have access to a wide variety of treatment options, resource-limited countries may have less access to education about HIV and treatment options may be limited. This lecture will review the current state of HIV in the United States and then contrast that with countries in sub-Saharan Africa including Senegal, Uganda, Botswana, and South Africa.

Speaker: Jason Blackard, Associate Professor of Medicine and Director of Medical Student Research Initiatives, University of Cincinnati’s College of Medicine

Introduction and local perspective from Lynne Saddler, MD, MPH, District Director of Health, Northern Kentucky Health Department.

Free and open to all. Reception following the presentation.
