HIVMA Vice Chair Allison Agwu, MD, ScM, FIDSA, reflects on racism and social determinants of health, the long-lasting impact of history, and the need to address disparities and inequities in HIV treatment and prevention through provider education.
With regular posts, IDSA’s blog reminds readers that infectious diseases don’t observe national boundaries, and effective, evidence-based responses protect us all. With the on-the-ground experience of IDSA members and staff, Science Speaks informs readers of both global and domestic impacts and answers to infectious diseases.
The blog also provides updates on IDSA’s and HIVMA’s science-based approaches to improve the health of individuals and their communities and to address challenges facing the field of ID and HIV, both in the U.S. and around the world.
