Science Alone Can't Create a Just World

I often talk about what it was like testing HIV-positive in 1992, when the only treatment available was AZT. Today, I consider the bounty of treatments available and the many more in development. I think of what science has done for me, this field, and for so many others like me. Yet science alone can’t create a just world. In its purest form, science can be cold, calculated, and simply focused on what can be proven true or false. Science has delivered both cures and bombs, has been used for both good and bad. While science has the potential to fix much of what ails us — it won’t work for the advancement of us all without being firmly steeped in and led by our values.

An Open Letter to My Sister Advocates in the Struggle on National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day: A Reminder of Our responsibility to the Next Generation!

I am speaking out on National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD) because it’s more than just another day for women like me – a wife, mother, sister, auntie and friend. We must begin to break our silence and lift our voices to ensure that other women and girls know how HIV impacts one’s health and one’s life. We must also speak out to ensure women have the tools they need to prevent this still devastating disease.
