You are invited: DC event related to the Millennium Development Goals

By on .

Join us on Wednesday, Sept. 15th at a Global Health Council event looking at integrated health programs and how to achieve the sixth Millennium Development Goal — which pledges to halt and begin to reverse the incidence of AIDS, TB and Malaria by 2015.

The event will start with a screening of “The Test,” a 20-minute film demonstrating the principles of the Global Health Initiative at work on the ground; in this case how HIV is integrated with other infectious diseases and the overall impact on a community and household.   After the showing, there will be a panel discussion on the film and the implementation issues through the lens of a government panel and civil society.  

The Center’s Christine Lubinski will be moderating the event, which will take place from 4 to 7 pm at The Historical Society of Washington, DC – 801 K Street, NW – in The Theatre.

Introductory remarks will be made by Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen, CEO of Vestergaard Frandsen SA.

Panel discussion participants include: Ambassador to the United States from Kenya, Elhanah Odembo; Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Tom Frieden, MD, MPH (invited); Lucy Chesire, an internationally known HIV/TB patient and advocate from the Kenyan AIDS NGO Consortium; and the Center’s invited guest David Hoos MD, MPH, Senior Implementation Director and Assistant Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the Mailman School of Public Health.

Please RSVP to rsvp@globalhealth.org with your name and affiliation.

Refreshments will be served following the panel discussion
