Part 2: Same-Sex partnerships in Sub-Saharan Africa, is public health the way to human rights?

In part two of our discussion on same sex partnerships in Sub-Saharan Africa, we speak with Dr. Stefan Baral, a physician epidemiologist and Assistant Scientist at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Dr. Baral was one of the first scientists to look into the epidemiology of HIV among men who have sex with men in low- and middle-income and he remains a leading expert in this area. He joins us today for a chat about the current epidemiology of HIV among MSM in SSA. He describes why criminalization of homosexuality leads to increased risk in this population and we discuss public health as a vehicle for human rights.
