Duke’s Vice President and Vice Provost for Global Affairs Michael Merson spoke today (Monday) in Washington, D.C., on the history of the global response to HIV/AIDS. The program took place at the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ (CSIS) Global Health Policy Center and focused on the future of global AIDS programs.
The talk unveiled Merson’s recently published book “The AIDS Pandemic: Searching for a Global Response,” coauthored with Stephen Inrig, professor at Mount Saint Mary's University and a Duke alumnus. The work details the 36-year history of HIV/AIDS and the controversial efforts to stanch the spread of the disease.
