Leaders Gather At Columbia University Event To Discuss Local, Global Responses To AIDS

A UNAIDS feature story reports on an event, titled “A Future without HIV/AIDS: Dream or Reality?,” held at Columbia University on September 28 and co-hosted by the World Leaders Forum and the International Center for AIDS Care and Treatment Programs (ICAP). PBS Senior Correspondent Ray Suarez moderated the debate, which included Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Ambassador Eric Goosby; UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibe; and Wafaa El-Sadr, director of ICAP and the Global Health Initiative at the Mailman School of Public Health. The leaders exchanged “experiences around local and global responses to AIDS,” the article notes (10/2). PBS NewsHour’s “The Rundown” recaps the event and provides a video replay (Suarez, 9/27).

The KFF Daily Global Health Policy Report summarized news and information on global health policy from hundreds of sources, from May 2009 through December 2020. All summaries are archived and available via search.
