Plagues and People: where do we stand with HIV protection in Africa?

Dr Paul Pronyk, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, will give a lecture about HIV in Africa at LSE on Wednesday 22 November.

From the Black Death to bird flu, outbreaks and epidemics have been around as long as humankind, dynamically interacting with politics, economics, culture and history. Dr Pronyk puts forward the idea that HIV/AIDS is no exception, and uses his understanding of epidemics to explore why prevention efforts are (largely) faltering in Africa.

Dr Paul Pronyk is a research fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Plagues and People: where do we stand with HIV protection in Africa? Is on Wednesday 22 November at 6.30pm in U8, Tower One, LSE, London, WC2A. The event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
