Symposium on Maternal and Child Mortality and AIDS in Africa
A growing body of evidence suggests that AIDS is a major cause of pregnancy-related death in populations where HIV rates are high. Although accurate data in Africa are limited, it appears that the AIDS epidemic in HIV-endemic countries like Malawi, Zimbabwe, and South Africa has largely reversed previous gains in reducing maternal mortality. In November, Bloustein Professor Meredeth Turshen organized and moderated a symposium that explored avenues by which HIV and AIDS are associated with maternal and child mortality, broadening the discussion of women’s health to include the inter-related issues of gender and development.Speakers include Eileen Stillwaggon, Professor of Economics, Gettysburg College; Stella Nyanzi, Research Fellow, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda; Francis Barchi, Assistant Professor, School of Social Work; Tefera Gezmu, Lecturer, Bloustein School; and Suzanne Willard, Clinical Associate Professor, School of Nursing,

Mount Laurel: In the Courts and in the Lives of People

with Kevin D. Walsh, Esq., Associate Director, Fair Share Housing Center, Cherry Hill, NJ and Douglas S. Massey, Henry G. Bryant Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University.
This lecture focused on the Mount Laurel anti-exclusionary zoning decisions by the New Jersey Supreme Court and their consequences. These rulings have held that, under the New Jersey Constitution, municipalities have an affirmative obligation to provide realistic opportunities for low-and-moderate income housing. As a result, the New Jersey legislature established the Council on Affordable Housing to oversee the administration of the state's affordable housing program.
