Description: Please join us for an update of the situation in Haiti from Dr. Jean Bill Pape, longtime NIH grantee and founder of GHESKIO, the world's first institution dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS. Since the January earthquake, Dr. Pape and his GHESKIO colleagues have been providing care for about 7,000 homeless people camped on its campus in downtown Port-au-Prince. They have provided emergency surgery and rehabilitation care to 3,000 trauma victims, scaled-up tuberculosis screening and treatment for 2,000 patients, and continued HIV services for 22,000 patients. GHESKIO is also committed to continuing its research and research training activities, which have been supported by NIH for more than two decades.

GHESKIO, an acronym for Groupe Hatien d’tude du Sarcome de Kaposi et des Infectieuses Opportunistes, has just been named the recipient of the 2010 Gates Award for Global Health. The organization has provided continuous medical care in Haiti since 1982—never once shutting its doors or charging fees.

A Haitian physician, Dr. Pape graduated from Weill Cornell Medical College in 1975 and returned to Haiti in 1979. He is an international leader in the fight against AIDS and the provision of health care for the resource-poor. In recognition of his achievements, he has received the Legion d'Honneur from the French government, the Carlos Slim 2010 global health award and has been elected a member of the Institute of Medicine.

This event is sponsored by Fogarty International Center, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the NIH Office of Aids Research.
