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 with your name and affiliation.

Refreshments will be served following the panel discussion
