Fighting AIDS in Mozambique

A former student of mine, Adam Graham-Silverman, recently spent five weeks in Mozambique as an International Reporting Project Fellow, through Johns Hopkins’ School of Advanced International Studies. Some of the results of that project were published last week, in a four-part series on Slate.com. Adam’s report takes an unflinching look at what the Bush administration’s “Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief” is and isn’t accomplishing in a country in which nearly ten percent of the adult population is thought to be infected.

[UPDATE, 6.7.05, 9.30 am: I meant to update this day before yesterday, and just let it get away from me: Adam informs me that it’s actually fifteen percent of the adult population that’s thought to be infected.]
