Fighting HIV/AIDS in Russia: Challenges, Successes, and Working in a Pandemic
January 13, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This event will be held virtually as a Zoom webinar and streamed via YouTube Live. There will be no in-person event.
Join us for a meeting of the New York-Russia Public Policy Forum, co-hosted by the Harriman Institute at Columbia University and the New York University Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia.
This panel will discuss the current state of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Russia as well as the actions of both governmental and non-governmental institutions in promoting awareness about the disease and preventing its spread. Panelists from across the spectrum of disciplines, including public health experts, political scientists, activists, and NGO leaders will reflect on lessons learned from Russia’s prevention and response efforts, as well as comment on the outlook for such efforts, especially in the challenging current public health environment resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
This event is supported by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
