U.S. Approaches to Preventing HIV in Adolescent Girls and Young Women: Lessons from Malawi

July 20, 2017 • 1:00 – 2:30 pm EDT

Please join us on July 20 for a discussion with U.S. Ambassador to Malawi, Virginia Palmer, and U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, Deborah Birx, about U.S. approaches to preventing HIV in adolescent girls and young women and the lessons from Malawi. The panel will discuss why, given constrained U.S. budgets, this program addresses a critical gap in efforts to curb the epidemic. This is a moment of great opportunity as well as challenge; it requires continued focus on and pressure for results, combined with realism and patience about the timeline needed to achieve such critical outcomes.

The discussion will also build off Janet Fleischman’s recent visit to Malawi for CSIS, and the two new publications she authored: “The Next Frontier: Stop New HIV Infections in Adolescent Girls and Young Women” and “Addressing HIV in Adolescent Girls and Young Women in Malawi: The DREAMS Partnership,” which will be released at the event.
