This two-hour course will give a brief overview of the AIDS pandemic in Sub-Saharan Africa, where 70% of all people infected with HIV live. We will move beyond the mind-numbing statistics and personalize the impact this disease is having on already fragile civil societies, using a “notes from the field” format with video, slides and lively conversation. With so many problems facing our more interconnected global society, this course will ask the question, “How can communities across the United States respond?” Do small and generous acts really matter?
