Working for an AIDS-Free World - A lecture by diplomat, author and AIDS activist Stephen Lewis
Stephen Lewis is the author of Race Against Time: Searching for Hope in AIDS-Ravaged Africa and currently serves as the director of the international NGO AIDS-Free World. His impassioned speeches, alive with anecdotes ranging from maddening to hilarious to heartbreaking, are a wake-up call for a world falling desperately short of the goals it has set for itself.
Stephen Lewis is Co-Director of AIDS-Free World, a new international advocacy organization that works to promote more urgent and more effective global responses to HIV/AIDS. Mr. Lewis was the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa (2001-2006); the Deputy Executive Director of UNICEF (1995-1999); and Canada's Ambassador to the United Nations (1984-1988).
