U.N. Academic Seminar to Provide Ideas to Halt HIV/AIDS Epidemic in Africa

September 9, 2008

A one-day seminar taking place Tuesday at the United Nations University seeks to facilitate research by international academic institutions toward the goal of halting HIV's spread across Africa. Cornell University is helping organize the Social and Economic Dimensions of HIV/AIDS in Africa Symposium, which will focus in particular on the epidemic's impact on women. "Women in Africa have little voice in sexual and reproductive choices and rely on health care systems that are often insensitive to their needs and vulnerabilities," said a press release from event organizers. Experts at the meeting will discuss the intersection of HIV/AIDS and such issues as poverty, reproduction, and sexual health and behavior.
