The impacts of HIV/AIDS go far beyond human health.

Richard Skolnik of the Population Reference Bureau will present current and future trends of the wide-ranging impacts of the HIV/AIDS pandemic; Lori Hunter of the University of Colorado, Boulder will present her research on how HIV/AIDS affects agriculture, nutrition, and land use; and Judy Oglethorpe of the World Wildlife Fund will discuss how the disease influences conservation efforts and security issues.
