Dialogue on the Future of HIV/AIDS Community Based Organizations in China

GWU's Sigur Center for Asian Studies cordially invites you to a conference on:Dialogue on the Future of HIV/AIDS Community Based Organizations in China.

July 27, 2012 9:00am to 1:00pm

China has been able to make incredible progress on its HIV epidemic, in part, because of the hard work of several hundred small community-based organizations (CBOs) that have received support from many multilateral and bilateral organizations and international foundations. Many of these CBOs have been very successful at improving access to treatment, gaining rights for people who are vulnerable to or affected by HIV, and raising awareness. These organizations have benefited immensely from the support and guidance they receive from their international partners. While they have made tremendous strides, they still need this guidance and their programs and will likely suffer when support from USAID and the Global Fund for AIDS Malaria and TB expires in a little over a year.

Please join us for a dialogue between several Chinese Community-Based Organizations working on HIV/AIDS and some of the organizations that have supported their work. Find the complete event itinerary and participant bios (more to be added).  

This Event will be moderated by Elanah Uretsky, Assistant Professor of Global Health, Anthropology, and International Affairs at George Washington University.

Panelists will include:    

  • Representatives from four Chinese AIDS CBOs
  • Andrew Miller, Country Director, PSI China
  • Shirley Lin, Country Manager, Pact China
  • Joan Kaufman, Distinguished Scientist, Heller School, Brandeis and lecturer in Global Health and Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School
