AIDS Around the World Workshop
by Tasha Riley
of AIDS Vancouver
January 05, 2011
As part of AIDS Vancouver We Care Red Ribbon Month a series of presentations exploring the current reality of HIV/AIDS were given by Dr. Tasha Riley, Prevention and Education Coordinator for AIDS Vancouver
The workshop, "HIV Around the World", originally took place Tue, Nov 2, during the We Care Red Ribbon Month at UBC Robson Square in downtown Vancouver.
The World Health Organization estimates that over 33.4 million people around the world are living with HIV. In this talk, we look at how Canada, China, India, Iran, South Africa and Russia have been affected by the HIV virus, how these countries have responded to the HIV epidemic and how this response has shifted over time. Interviews, readings and documentaries from around the world are introduced as well as a list of contacts and resources for more information.
