Off to Liberia, With UNITAID

I'm heading to Liberia this week on a global health reporting project.  I will accompany a delegation from UNITAID, a World Health Organization affiliated program that gives grants to governments and NGOs to implement HIV/AIDS, Malaria, TB and other health projects in the developing world.
