To mark the 30th anniversary of the first mention of AIDS in the medical literature, Harvard University convened a major international symposium.
Several hundred global health leaders, elected officials, scientists, artists and activists gathered to reflect on what we have learned from AIDS and how to apply those lessons towards ending the epidemic.
The two-day event, hosted by the Harvard School of Public Health, started on December 1, 2011, World AIDS Day.
The Botswana–Harvard AIDS Institute Partnership (BHP) is a collaborative research and training initiative between the Government of Botswana and HAI. Work at the BHP focuses on epidemiology, virology, molecular biology, immunology, genetics, clinical treatment, and social and behavioral issues relevant to the epidemic in Botswana and southern Africa.
The Network Issue: To end the AIDS epidemic, researchers must understand how the HIV moves within a community and use that knowledge to prevent new infections.
