One of the key architects of the NSW HIV Strategy – which sets NSW on the path to being one of the first jurisdictions to eliminate HIV transmission - Mrs Skinner will share with us her extensive insights into the importance of policy in improving health outcomes, the process of implementing the ambitious program, and the importance of cross-sector partnerships to making it happen.
Her lecture will be followed by a panel discussion, where she will be joined by key community, health and academic partners to reflect on the progress that has been made in NSW, and discuss what still needs to be done to achieve elimination of HIV transmission.
The Brett Tindall Memorial Lecture is an annual lecture awarded by the Kirby Institute to a world leader in infectious disease research.
It is awarded in memory of Dr Brett Tindall, who was one of the Kirby Institute’s first researchers in the 1980s. Brett's research focused on the process of seroconversion and the body's responses to the entry of HIV. He died of AIDS in 1994.
