The President's Reception for Retirees April 26, 2008
Dr. Allan Ronald gave a presentation on "Global Health - A Role for Manitoba".
This presentation was based on the work Dr. Ronald and others in the Department of Medical Microbiology in our Faculty of Medicine are doing in combating the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa. In 1980, before we in North America were aware of HIV/AIDS, Dr. Ronald was instrumental in establishing the University of Manitoba/University of Nairobi World Health Organization Research and Training Program in Sexually Transmitted Diseases. This program has been called the most important research site in the developing world. (Photography by Chris Reid)
