Mahir, how is most of the HIV transmitted, via birth or other ways.
Rebecca Hankins
01:43:17
Aya, Comoros sounds like an amazing place, is there much tourism?
Rebecca Hankins
01:44:18
Nafisah and Mahir how did your education prepare you for your work or if it did prepare you? Do you recommend getting graduate degrees before volunteering?
Mahir Khan
01:44:38
Rebecca - I can talk more on this, but actually the most common form of transmission is through unprotected sex, usually as a result of transactional or inter-generational (older men sleeping with younger women) sex. Transmission at birth, or mother-to-child-transmission, is actually very low in Botswana, less than 1%, and is a huge success story we're very proud of! Thanks for asking!
Rebecca Hankins
01:45:30
Thanks, so I can see the necessity of condom education. Did you face any push back?
Mahir Khan
01:47:40
Yes, some, but it's not as stigmatized as I thought because of how effective the HIV education had already been in the country.. Botswana still faces a lot of challenges, but they are open to facing the problem of HIV head on and together.

For all, what did you miss about America? What didn’t you miss about America?

Harris, that was an interesting mosque structure, was it built from the ground up and who attended?
Ayah

I was a Coverdell fellow, and it helped with graduate school
