Why HIV/AIDS is Still Exceptional

Monday, April 20, 2009 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

**WE'RE SORRY - THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL**

Please join us for a discussion with Dr. Alan Whiteside, where he will examine the origins of AIDS exceptionalism and how it has helped and hindered our response to the epidemic. Whiteside will ask if exceptionalism is still a useful concept in light of our current knowledge about the epidemic, the global financial crisis and changes in health governance. Nandini Oomman and Mead Over from the Center for Global Development will serve as discussants for what promises to be a fascinating conversation.
