The 16th International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa is happening in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and TruthAIDS will be a part of it. We are partnering up with the Ethiopian Film Initiative to shed new light on the human face of the epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa. Stay tuned for details.
The Harvard University Center for AIDS Research (HU CFAR), The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and national & local partners presented a symposium, November 19 -20, 2010, to examine the increasingly critical HIV/AIDS epidemic in Black America. This first in a series of meetings entitled “The Forgotten Epidemic” explored how and why HIV/AIDS has become an overwhelmingly Black disease in the United States.
The HU CFAR/NAACP symposium was a unique opportunity to bring together a diverse, multidisciplinary group of partners including people living with HIV, government officials, health care providers, scientists/researchers, faith-, youth- and community-based organizations. Attendees exchanges creative and innovative ideas on topics ranging from new strategies for prevention, advances in research and treatment, health care reform, and social and political forces at play in this American crisis. Dr. Mandefro spoke on the opening plenary session alongside:
- Dr. Valerie Stone, Associate Professor of Medicine, HMS and Faculty, MGH
- Kevin Cranston, Director, Bureau of Infectious Disease, Massachusetts Department of Public Health
- Phill Wilson, President and CEO of the Black AIDS Institute
