WHAT IT MEANS TO BE AN HIV FUNDER: LISA BOHMER
As the epidemic continues to evolve, it’s more important than ever to explore this topic. With over 30 years of experience as a public health professional, Bohmer is uniquely qualified to weigh in. She leads the Hilton Foundation’s Young Children Affected by HIV and AIDS program, where she works with partners to improve early childhood development outcomes in East and Southern Africa. She is also a five-year member of FCAA’s board, and the Chair of the Coalition for Children Affected by AIDS.
