The UCSF Women's Global Health Imperative held its 4th annual International Women's Day Briefing on March 8, 2004. The notable speeches of Dr. Nafis Sadik (the United Nations Special Envoy to AIDS in Asia), Dr. Speciosa Wandira Kazibwe (the former Vice-President of Uganda), and Dr. Suneeta Krishnan (WGHI's director of programs in India) highlighted this years theme, Women, Poverty and HIV. On behalf of WGHI, Dr. David Kessler, Dean of the UCSF School of Medicine, presented the Auxillia Chimosoro award for outstanding leadership in Women's Health to Alfred T. Mays, representing the Johnson & Johnson Corporate Contributions Program. During the reception, audience members gathered around the photo exhibit, Dispatches from the Field, a compilation of photographs taken by young women in San Francisco as part of the Mission Youth Health Study. Thanks to all who participated in making this event a success and supporting the ongoing work of WGHI!
