Much has changed in Botswana since President Festus Mogae warned in 2001, "We are threatened with extinction." The HIV/AIDS death rate in Botswana-once one of the highest in the world-has dropped significantly since that dire proclamation. Harvey Friedman, MD, Director of the now 10-year-old Botswana-UPenn Partnership, talks about Penn's role in treating HIV/AIDS in Botswana, new challenges to health in the region, and what we are learning about new ways to treat patients and populations.
