Guest: Stephen Lewis
Women around the world are more likely to be infected with HIV, in part because of their social and economic vulnerability. The stark lack of empowerment of women in many parts of the world indicates the need for men to help protect their gender counterparts from the scourge of HIV. Stephen Lewis, co-director of AIDS-Free World, a former United Nations special envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa and former deputy executive director of UNICEF, speaks about our need to address the role of sexual violence in furthering the spread of HIV with host Dr. Cathleen Margolin.
