Course Description

The HIV/AIDS pandemic is a crisis of incredible social. cultural. political and economic significance. This seminar systematically examines how the aims and content of HIV/AIDS programs undertaken by IGOs, NGOs, States and communities vary. Additionally, the seminar will investigate the extent to which structural differences between these organizational forms translate into comparative advantages or disadvantages in specific policy areas. Using the HIV/AIDS pandemic as a case study in comparative crisis response enables students to gain important grounding in the key issues relating to the most significant global challenge of the era and to critically assess the importance of structural variation within the non profit sector for program capacity.

Grading Policy

Three major assignments for the course: 1) A group assignment describing a nonprofit working in the area of HIV/AIDS 2) A program evaluation (written alone or in pairs), and 3) An individual program proposal (as the final course project).
