International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) Director of Global Health Katherine Fritz will participate today in a panel discussion about approaches to preventing HIV that consider the social, political and economic inequities – or “structural drivers” – that influence the AIDS epidemic.
The event is part of the International AIDS Conference this week in Washington, D.C., and will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Mini Room 3 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center downtown.
Titled “Pushing Forward with Structural Interventions for HIV Prevention – Where We Are Now and How Do We Move Forward,” the panel is sponsored by AIDSTAR-One, the United States Agency for International Development and STRIVE, a new research consortium in which ICRW is a partner.
During the panel, Fritz is expected to draw on a growing body of ICRW research that analyzes the link between alcohol consumption and increased HIV risk.
