Event Description

In contrast to many countries, Australia quickly developed a range of pragmatic and innovative measures to prevent the spread of HIV. The United States largely failed to heed Australia’s example. This illustrated lecture outlines how two countries, facing similar epidemics, came to adopt such different approaches to AIDS control, and suggests the consequences.

This event is the Annual Lecture of the History Council of Victoria. It is being held in conjunction with AIDS 2014: 20th International AIDS Conference and is part of the Making Public Histories seminar series, organised in collaboration with the State Library of Victoria and the Institute of Public History (Monash University).  

The lecturer, Dr Paul Sendziuk, is the author of Learning to Trust: Australian Responses to AIDS and is an Associate Professor in the School of History and Politics at the University of Adelaide.

Tickets:     $9.00
