MSH co-organized a satellite session on July 21, 2014, on women, HIV & AIDS, and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) with the American Cancer Society (ACS), Medtronic, and the Task Force on Non-communicable Diseases and Women’s Health. MSH President & CEO Jonathan D. Quick, MD, MPH, opened the session. Bob Chapman (American Cancer Society) introduced a new video series on people living with chronic diseases.

Sandy Thurman (US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief [PEPFAR]) provided context on the current state of women, HIV & AIDS, and non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Thurman shared examples from Pink Ribbon/Red Ribbon, a partnership between the George W. Bush Institute (GWBI), PEPFAR, Susan G. Komen, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), as well as corporate and foundation members.

Living with HIV, Young Professionals, Implementers

Dr. Quick and panelists L’Orangelis Thomas Negron, HIV & AIDS activist; Kim Green, FHI360; Jordan Jarvis, Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network; and Katie Reichert, Building Local Capacity for Delivery of HIV Services in Southern Africa (MSH), discussed barriers to health for women in low-and middle-income countries living with HIV & AIDS and chronic non-communicable diseases.

A lively Q&A session included questions and ideas from colleagues working in Malawi, Kenya, and more.
