Peace Corps' Marie McLeod Shares Perspective From AIDS 2016
July 19, 2016
During the Tuesday's activities at AIDS 2016 in Durban, South Africa, we had a chance to speak with Marie McLeod, Director of Global Health and HIV Office at the Peace Corps. Peace Corps is among the federal agencies that supports the implementation of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) with approximately 700 Peace Corps Volunteers involved on the ground HIV activities in posts primarily in sub-Saharan Africa.
During her Facebook Live event, Ms. McLeod spoke about the variety of those activities from HIV prevention and care work to work with orphans and vulnerable children. View her interview here to learn more about what the Peace Corps is doing in the global response to HIV.
