HIV/AIDS at the U.S.-Mexico Border: Binational Challenges


World AIDS Day takes place on Dec. 1 of each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.

Join us in an important conversation about the status of HIV/AIDS in our binational region. With experts drawn from across UC San Diego, the panel will explore existing cross-border research, as well as the need for new mechanisms and increased funding for bilateral collaboration. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session and reception.


  • Natasha Martin, Division of Infectious Diseases & Global Public Health, Department of Medicine, UC San Diego
  • Carlos Valdez, CAPASITS Tijuana
  • Teresita Rocha, Joint Doctoral Program in Public Health UCSD/SDSU, Division of Infectious Diseases & Global Public Health, UC San Diego

This is a GPS student-run event, and part of the School’s 30th anniversary celebration. Please join us for what will undoubtedly be a powerful evening. Discover additional activities planned on campus.
