“Going Global: Medical Ethics in the Age of AIDS”
Maura Ryan, John Cardinal O’Hara Associate Professor of Christian Ethics, Department of Theology

Since it was first recognized in 1981, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) has contributed to the deaths of more than 25 million people. Of those infected with HIV/AIDS in 2007, 68 percent lived in Sub-Saharan Africa. In this lecture, Ryan explores what AIDS has taught us about health and illness, poverty and vulnerability, hope and solidarity.y
