Once upon a time, in the depths of human history, a silent enemy emerged. It crept from the shadows, infiltrating communities, and leaving devastation in its wake. This enemy had no face, no discernible form, but its impact was felt far and wide. This was the beginning of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, a chapter that forever changed the course of human history.
In this episode of the Public Health Insight Podcast, Oluwakemi Gbadamosi from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) joins us to talk about the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Sub-Saharan Africa.
I’ve sat on the AIDS Healthcare Foundation Board of Directors for several years. In fact, we have clinics in the West African nations of Sierra Leone and Nigeria, two countries I visited. Though I didn’t have the chance to visit those clinics, here’s an AHF podcast that talks about our work combating HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa.
