The Rosenkranz Global Health Policy Research Symposium at Stanford University will be held on Tuesday, May 16, 2023. The Symposium is a day-long event that showcases innovative global health policy research by academics from around the world. After the symposium, our keynote speaker will be Sheila Tlou, chancellor of Botswana Open University and the former minister of health for Botswana at the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. She currently is co-chair of the Global HIV Prevention Coalition and co-chair of the Nursing Now Global Campaign. Tlou, who has a PhD in community nursing from the University of Illinois at Chicago, helped launch the WHO’s State of the World Nursing Report in Geneva.

Her keynote address will focus on her personal experiences in translating and applying evidence-based decision-making to global health policy in the areas of gender, health, and HIV/AIDS. Following her talk, she will be in conversation with Michele Barry, director of the Stanford Center for Innovation in Global Health.
