Report on HIV/AIDS from Africa
The HIV/AIDS pandemic has a 40-year story — one that has afforded hard-learned lessons that informed the world's response to future pandemics, including the coronavirus. Collaborate with Kenyan university students to tell that story through the lens of AMPATH — Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare — an academic health partnership led by the IU School of Medicine and the Moi University School of Medicine that is one of Africa's largest and most effective responses to HIV/AIDS.
Reporting HIV/AIDS in Africa is a four-credit, eight-week course during summer semester on health care reporting. The class includes a four-week trip to Kenya.
Taught by associate professor James Kelly, the course immerses students in Kenyan culture. Students will gain scientific and cultural knowledge about HIV/AIDS and apply multimedia storytelling skills to report as foreign correspondents.
