The Human Toll of South Africa's Early AIDS Policies

Host: Cathleen Margolin, PhD

Guest: Pride Chigwedere, MD, PhD

Dr. Pride Chigwedere, an affiliate of the Harvard AIDS Initiative, speaks with host Dr. Cathleen Margolin about the role of government policy in the AIDS epidemic in South Africa. Dr. Chigwedere's research, as published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes, pins fault on these frightening government rules for the loss of more than 3.8 million person-years in the early portion of this decade. How is South Africa now moving toward a state of accountability for this crucial aspect of their overall public health strategy?
