Info and Discussion of HIV/AIDS in India

Friday, November 10, 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Dr. Kaung’s Salon: HIV/AIDS in India: Crisis, Policy, Action

How does one do outreach to educate people about HIV/AIDS in a country with a population of one billion? How much do the medicines cost? What about the patents? What about the children? What’s the global-local connection?

Join Vineeta Gupta, MD., JD, international policy expert, social entrepreneur, and grassroots organizer, and Director of the DC-based Stop HIV/AIDS in India Initiative, for a very interesting discussion of a problem that impacts us all, no matter where we live.

Kyi May Kaung, Ph.D., originally from India's neighbor to the east, Burma, where HIV/AIDS has reached epidemic proportions, will moderate.
