The International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care will honor a South African human rights activist and three HIV clinicians at the group's annual "Honoring Our Heroes" reception, to be held October 25 in Chicago. John Bartlett of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; F. James Muller of the Department of Medicine in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa; and George Janossy of London's Royal Free and University College Medical School will receive the IAPAC Hero in Medicine Awards for their work in HIV research and treatment. Zackie Achmat, head of South Africa's Treatment Action Campaign, will receive the Jonathan Mann Health Human Rights Award.
"In a global battle against HIV/AIDS that can seem, at times, like an impossible struggle, it is important to honor those who are doing such difficult and essential work and who give strength to others through the power of example," said Jose M. Zuniga, president and CEO of IAPAC. Previous IAPAC award recipients include former president Bill Clinton and South African archbishop Desmond Tutu.
