Session: Ethics, Human Rights and the HIV/AIDS Crisis in the African American Population
3297.0: Monday, November 06, 2006: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Ethics, Human Rights and the HIV/AIDS Crisis in the African American Population
As new vaccines become available, HIV continues to spread throughout the African American community, shadowed by increasing challenges to human rights of African American both national and global levels. A population groups: those who live on the fringes of society or who are assumed to be at risk of infection because of behaviors, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, or social characteristics that are stigmatized in a particular society, continue to suffer. Discrimination of this population group can jeopardizes equitable distribution of access to HIV-related goods for prevention and care, including drugs necessary for HIV/AIDS care. This session will examine the focus on the human rights of people living with HIV/AIDS, which shaped the initial understanding of the AIDS and human rights relationship
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: 1. Discuss social ethical problems of combating the long wave HIV/AIDS crisis in the African American community. 2. Discuss (2) ethical implications of treatment versus prevention-led strategies for addressing human right and HIV in the African American community.
