World AIDS Day. December 1, 2018

Dear all,

Today marks the 30th Worlds AIDS Day. Today especially itโ€™s important to take a moment to reflect on the scale of this epidemic- the 70 million people who have been infected with HIV, the 37 million who continue to live with infection, and the 1.8 million who will become infected in the next year. Those numbers often feel too large to comprehend, so instead I hope you can connect to something more immediate- the patients you treat, the research participants youโ€™ve encountered, friends, and family members. As you all know, although there has been tremendous progress in the fight against HIV, there is still so much left to be done. However, I believe that we, as a community, will be able to end the HIV pandemic within our lifetimes, and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to be part to these efforts. And I especially feel privileged to be undertaking this monumental task together with such a committed and talented group of people.
I hope this day will provide a moment for you to remember all those lost and the terrible grief that HIV has caused, but I also hope that you will be reminded about the importance of the work you all do and the possibility of creating a world without HIV.

Join a chat with me, Krista Dong, Thumbi Ndungโ€™u and Bruce Walker to discuss our study on HIV in young women in sub-Saharan Africa.

Science Immunology
In countries like South Africa, HIV risk for women is inseparable from poverty and female disempowerment. How can HIV vaccination studies go beyond sample collection and other research methodologies, to also give back to the communities afflicted by the disease?

Join our chat with Bruce Walker, Krista Dong, Douglas Kwon, and Thumbi Ndung’u, scientists behind the FRESH (Females Rising Through Education, Support, and Health) program in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, where the HIV incidence rate is approaching 10% per year. Unlike other HIV research projects, the Gates Foundation-funded FRESH offers educational opportunities – including academic training and interactive sessions on self-esteem, relationship, and gender-based violence – that's provided at no cost to all study participants.
