About This Lecture

Dr. Fuller will discuss how a new science-based HIV/AIDS intervention, which involves the participation of religious leader networks, is helping address infectious disease health disparities in the United States, Zambia, Botswana, and South Africa. This model, designated the “Trusted Messenger Intervention,” reframes HIV as a viral infection that can be controlled and encourages trusted faith leaders to influence and educate their communities about preventative measures.
