Panel Discussion on HIV/AIDs as it Affects Women in Sub-Saharan Africa

Yesterday, which was World AIDS Day, I received an email about the following amazing event and wanted to pass the information along. I can’t go because I have a volunteer commitment, but I look forward to hearing about it afterward!

The Metro NY Chapter of the US National Committee of UNIFEM (Part of UN Women) invites you to a Panel Discussion on HIV/AIDs as it Affects Women in Sub-Saharan Africa

6:30pm – 8:00pm

SUMMARY Given the intimate connection between HIV/AIDS and Maternal Child Heath in Africa, we brought together speakers to discuss the scope of the problem, challenges and unmet needs. They will share their experiences and will discuss how coordination and integration of health care delivery systems targeted towards HIV/AIDS as well as other important health priorities including maternal and child health is key in creating sustainable health outcomes.
