The Russia-backed separatists have taken a hard line on drug addiction, in contrast with Kyiv's policy of making methadone available to those hoping to get off hard drugs.

Join UCSF Archives & Special Collections for an afternoon talk on Wednesday, January 11, 2017, with Pulitzer Center-supported journalists Jon Cohen, Amy Maxmen and Misha Friedman as they discuss their reporting on HIV/AIDS around the globe. Once on the brink of ending AIDS, we have entered a period in which the virus is offering a stern warning to the human host: the consequences of complacency are great.

Cohen tailors his decades of expertise to explain a nuanced issue in the movement to end AIDS: supply chain management of antiretroviral therapies, from pharmaceutical companies through patient adherence. Maxmen reports from South Africa, where scientists are aiming to break a cycle of infections by providing HIV drugs for young women before they even contract the virus. Friedman's work epitomizes in-depth reporting: he has spent years documenting the crisis in Eastern Europe and recently returned to South Africa to interview and photograph HIV-infected subjects he first photographed three years ago.

Reporting by these journalists and others supported by the Pulitzer Center are featured in the e-book, To End AIDS.

This event is hosted jointly by UCSF Archives and Special Collections and the Department of Anthropology, History & Social Medicine in partnership with the Pulitzer Center.
