João Biehl on "Social Innovation in Global Health"

João Biehl delivers Princeton’s most recent Presidential lecture (March 4, 2009) on “Social Innovation in Global Health: When People Come First.” The lecture builds on the work on the management of the AIDS epidemic in Brazil which appears in Biehl’s Will to Live: AIDS Therapies and the Politics of Survival (Princeton: 2007).
