The latest in global sexual and reproductive health news
"In the four minutes I have to speak, two or three women will have died in childbirth." With this stark observation, Purnima Mane, chief executive of health NGO, Pathfinder International, reminded an audience of more than 100 company executives, ministers and global health leaders why they were gathered together.
"As a former member of IAVI’s Policy Advisory Committee, I have long believed that the development of a safe and effective HIV vaccine is essential to bringing an end to the AIDS pandemic,” Purnima Mane, President and CEO of Pathfinder International, said. “That conviction has been reinforced continually over nearly three decades of work in areas related to AIDS and sexual and reproductive health. I look forward to working with IAVI to help make the goal of a broadly effective AIDS vaccine a reality.”
