Global Center to Host Leading HIV/AIDS Physician-Scientist From South Africa

The Center for Global Health Policy plans to bring Robin Wood, MD, a leading HIV/AIDS physician-scientist from South Africa, to Washington in September for a series of community forums, policy meetings, and press events. The trip is part of the Global Center’s efforts to make the voices of physicians in developing countries heard in American policy debates.

Dr. Wood is director of the Desmond Tutu HIV Centre at the Institute of Infectious Diseases and Molecular Medicine in Cape Town. The marquee event during Dr. Wood’s visit will be a forum, co-sponsored by the Kaiser Family Foundation, on the U.S. government’s strategy to combat global tuberculosis. With South Africa at the epicenter of HIV/TB co-infection, Dr. Wood will address the unique threat posed by the synergy between these two deadly diseases.
