Getting Burned: Global Health Disparities in STI/HIV Care and Prevention

October 3 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

The right to health is fundamental to the human condition, yet achieving sexual health remains an elusive goal. Rates of sexually transmitted infections continue to climb across the world, and with uneven access to effective HIV prevention methods. Anthropologically-informed public health analyses demonstrate the ways in which social and structural factors serve to sustain and strengthen disparities of sexual health opportunity and outcome in the context of globalization.

Dr. Bradley Stoner is Professor and Head, Department of Public Health Sciences and Professor of Medicine at Queen’s University, Kingston, ON Canada. His research focuses on the clinical epidemiology of sexually transmitted diseases and sociocultural factors which influence infectious disease risk in human populations. He is the former Chief of STD Services for the St. Louis County (MO) Department of Health, and Medical Director of the CDC-funded St. Louis STD/HIV Prevention Training Center. He also served as Chair of the CDC/HRSA Advisory Committee (CHAC) on HIV, Viral Hepatitis, and STD Prevention and Treatment. He is Past-President of the American Sexually Transmitted Diseases Association (ASTDA), and currently serves as North American Regional Director for the International Union Against Sexually Transmitted Infections (USTI. He is board-certified in infectious diseases and internal medicine.

This event is co-sponsored by the USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health. Sofia Gruskin, Director of the USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health, will provide introductory remarks.
