Although major medical advances have been made in the treatment of HIV, thousands of new infections still occur each month. Recent statistics show a disturbing trend of increased infections of females, especially females of African descent. For her sabbatical lecture and in honor of Women’s History Month, Prof. Anderson will discuss the social and economic dynamics behind those statistics. Based on her experiences in South Africa and Brazil, as well as the United States, she will explain why those dynamics present continuing challenges to the Church and its traditional response to the pandemic.
The Intersection program incorporates lectures by and reflection with the distinguished faculty and guests of Garrett-Evangelical.
