Details About the talk

Na África subsariana, as infeções por VIH são mais comuns e os médicos mais escassos do que em qualquer outro lugar do mundo. Com falta de profissionais de saúde, Mitchell Besser recrutou a ajuda dos seus doentes para criar a "mothers2mothers" [mães-para-mães] — uma extraordinária rede de mulheres VIH-positivas cujo apoio mútuo está a mudar e a salvar vidas.
