I Walk For Families Living with HIV Around the Globe
I am a pediatrician and HIV researcher who specializes in figuring out how to improve care for HIV-infected children in poor places. My particular area of interest is how to best help families with the challenge of having children take HIV medicines every day for the rest of their lives.
I have seen too many children die from HIV. I am walking because an early death is not how the story is supposed to end for someone with HIV. With the right combination of medicines, taken every single day, children with HIV can not only survive, but thrive into adulthood. It’s my goal to help thousands of families meet that challenge. I have the great privilege of working with the AMPATH partnership, a collaboration between North American medical schools led by Indiana University and a Kenyan medical school that currently cares for over 150,000 people living with HIV in Kenya.
Though my own work is based in Kenya, HIV is a global problem. That means it is a problem for families in Indiana too. I am so proud to have the opportunity to do something, even something small, to support families in Indiana living with HIV and the work that Indiana University and Eskenazi Hospital do to provide excellent care for these families!
