The Center for Values Presents: Fire in the Blood: Documentary Screening

Wednesday, January 20, 2016, 7:30 p.m.
Venue: JO 2.604
Admission: Free
Season: 2015-16

Fire in the Blood documents the mass casualties in Africa and the global South brought about by Western pharmaceutical companies and governments who blocked access to low-cost antiretroviral drugs used for treating people with HIV/AIDS in the ’90s. With contributions from Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu and Joseph Stiglitz, the film delves into the lethal decision-making process that led to a humanitarian catastrophe. Essential viewing for anyone concerned with inhumane patent policies in developing nations, this screening will be followed by a discussion featuring Dr. Mark Tschaepe, assistant professor of philosophy at Prairie View A&M University, and a Board Director for the AIDS Foundation in Houston. Dr. Tschaepe is also a guest lecturer on HIV/AIDS discrimination at Baylor College of Medicine.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Values in Medicine, Science and Technology.
