Elizabeth is a fearlessly outspoken epidemiologist, well known for her international work on HIV/AIDS. More recently she has turned her attention to Indonesia, writing an unforgettable book exploring why Indonesia, vast, populous and getting richer, is practically invisible to the naked geopolitical eye. She also has some startling thoughts on corruption and why attempts to stop it so often end in failure. Find out what she’s thinking in this talk.
While with us in Brussels, Elizabeth Pisani also held a lunch talk on what she knows best; sex and drugs. Under this controversial title Elizabeth addressed the increasing normalisation of HIV in contemporary society, but how living with it is far from “a picnic”.
