Dr Geeta Rao Gupta, president of the International Centre for Research on Women, will give a public lecture at LSE on Monday 9 October. She will trace the progress made in the understanding of women's special vulnerabilities in the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
In tracing the progress made, she will review the key historical events, scholarly efforts, and community responses that have contributed to increased insight. She will then pose some uncomfortable questions about this record.
This public lecture is sponsored by LSEAIDS and the UK Government's Department for International Development (DFID). LSEAIDS brings together leading social scientists at the LSE to confront the social and economic implications of HIV/AIDS.
Professor Tony Barnett of the Development Studies Institute (DESTIN) will chair the event.
Women and AIDS: from here to where is on Monday 9 October 2006 at 6.30pm in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Aldwych, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
