 The Symposium is a day-long event that showcases innovative global health policy research from academics across the country. After the symposium, our keynote speaker will be Sheila Tlou and her talk and conversation with CIGH Director Dr. Michele Barry will be open to the wider public. Dr. Tlou, a prominent figure in gender and HIV/AIDS policy in Africa, will discuss her personal experiences in translating and applying evidence-based decision-making to global health policy in the areas of gender, health, and HIV/AIDS. Tlou was the minister of health of Botswana at the height of the HIV epidemic and currently is the Co-Chair of the Global HIV Prevention Coalition and Co-Chair of the Nursing Now Global Campaign.  Tlou, who has a PhD in community nursing from the University of Illinois at Chicago, helped launch the WHO’s State of the World Nursing Report in Geneva.
