What is the status of foreign aid in sub-Saharan Africa? What global health initiatives, like PEPFAR, have been effective? What doesn't work? And how is Alabama involved?
Dr. Craig Wilson, Professor Emeritus at UAB's School of Public Health Department of Epidemiology, has over 30 years of experience developing global health programs. In his time as director of UAB's Sparkman Center for Global Health, Dr. Wilson conducted workforce development projects in Ethiopia and Zambia, and participated in numerous HIV-related capacity building programs across the continent.
Did you know that a UAB-created software solution has been used for digitizing all Grade 9-12 content in Ethiopia? Plans for dissemination into all 3,800 high schools in Ethiopia were finalized in December 2017 and an agreement for digitizing content for Grades 7 and 8 was signed in May. Countries across the continent have expressed interest in this Alabama-made technology.
Come learn about the current status of foreign aid and AIDS in Africa, as well as Alabama's connection to the continent. We look forward to seeing you.
