When was the last time you watched a webinar? Virtual participation can help you to stay abreast of what’s happening in the world of HIV prevention, care and treatment or research.
WatchWe recently redesigned the HIV.gov webinars resource page to better share information about webinars that we think might be useful to YOU.
The following National Institute of Health (NIH) webcast is just one of the resources we have listed – and we think it’s particularly worth watching:
Ambassador-at-Large Dr. Deborah L. Birx will deliver the 2015 Joseph J. Kinyoun Memorial Lecture Tuesday, December 15, 2015. from 3:00 to 4:00 pm. She will discuss how data are being leveraged to save lives and drive progress toward sustained control of the global HIV/AIDS pandemic. Birx is the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and U.S. Special Representative for Global Health Diplomacy. She oversees implementation of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the largest commitment to combat a single disease by any nation in history. PEPFAR collects and analyzes data to understand health care service cost, quality and achievements at community care sites around the globe. Birx will describe how use of these detailed data has been critical for understanding local HIV prevalence, determining the quality and cost of services and defining key gaps. She will discuss how PEPFAR is working with host countries to use these data to refocus programs for maximal impact.
No registration is needed to watch this one. Just visit this NIH page on December 15.
