Topics regarding health and sexuality are often contested and controversial in international debates. This seminar aims to bring together global public health experts to present some of the latest findings and evidence in the areas of women’s health and HIV/AIDS. Understanding the public health trends and evidence can lead to better proposals for public policy and international engagement in critical areas of global health and their relation to the dignity of the human person.
