Commemorating World AIDS Day: A Conversation With Dr. Angeli Achrekar, Acting U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Special Representative for Global Health Diplomacy
The United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) was launched to address the global HIV/AIDS epidemic, providing funding for HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and care. During this conversation, Dr. Achrekar will discuss the goals of PEPFAR, the coexistence of HIV/AIDS with the COVID-19 pandemic, and future directions and challenges.
YIGH launched the Global Health Conversation Series as a moderated forum for the Yale community and alumni to listen to and learn from some of today’s pivotal decision-makers in the world of global health and the COVID-19 pandemic. The series is generously supported by the George Herbert Walker, Jr. Lecture in International Studies at the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale.
