Category: Joseph J. Kinyoun - Infection and Immunity
Runtime: 01:07:17
Description: Ambassador-at-Large Dr. Deborah L. Birx, a renowned HIV/AIDS expert, will deliver the 2015 Joseph J. Kinyoun Memorial Lecture. She will discuss how data are being leveraged to save lives and drive progress toward sustained control of the global HIV/AIDS pandemic. Birx is the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and U.S. Special Representative for Global Health Diplomacy. She oversees implementation of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the largest commitment to combat a single disease by any nation in history. PEPFAR collects and analyzes data to understand health care service cost, quality and achievements at community care sites around the globe. Birx will describe how use of these detailed data has been critical for understanding local HIV prevalence, determining the quality and cost of services and defining key gaps. She will discuss how PEPFAR is working with host countries to use these data to refocus programs for maximal impact. Over the past 30 years, Birx has focused on HIV/AIDS immunology, vaccine research and global health. As Director of the U.S. Military HIV Research Program, she helped lead the landmark RV144 HIV vaccine trial in Thailand, which provided the first evidence that a vaccine could provide protection against HIV infection. From 2005 to 2014, as Director of the Division of Global HIV/AIDS at CDC, Birx led the agency’s implementation of PEPFAR programs around the world. Since 1979, NIAID has hosted an annual public lecture in honor of Dr. Joseph J. Kinyoun, a pioneer of modern scientific research. Kinyoun founded the Laboratory of Hygiene, the forerunner of NIH, in 1887, launching a new era of scientific study of infectious diseases.
