World AIDS Day Panel and Discussion - Unequal Infection

Global Health Panel
World AIDS: “Unequal Infection: How Inequality Fuels the Global AIDS Pandemic"
Panelists include:
Renee McCoy, Senior Prevention Manager at Lifelong AIDS Alliance; Phil Bereano, co-founder of the Seattle chapter of ACT-UP; Scott Hix, community activist living with AIDS; and graduate students and doctors from around the world who have worked with HIV/AIDS in their own countries.

Thursday, December 1, 2011
3:30 - 5:30 pm
Smith 120

This event aims to highlight the relationship between global inequality and the AIDS epidemic. HIV/AIDS is an affliction of inequality, continuously striking the most vulnerable and marginalized then and spreading rapidly among the poor. Inequality drives the epidemic - from the social conditions that provoke HIV transmission to the global politics of pharmaceuticals, healthcare, safety nets, and foreign aid that shape the public health and medical response. The Critical Development Forum (CDF) and the Global 99 have assembled a panel of AIDS activists and public health practitioners experts to describe how the Occupy movement is also a part of the struggle for equity in addressing the AIDS crisis in the United States and around the world.

There will be a special guest performance by local Hip-Hop and R&B artist,
Scribes, who has collaborated with artists like Macklemore and Pearl Jam.

Following the discussion there will be an opportunity to break into groups to organize future events and activities.
