This week, Dr. Elvira will be speaking with Nithya Mani, Public Health Advisor for family planning and HIV integration at USAID’s Office of HIV/AIDS.
Nithya has worked in international public health for over twelve years focusing on HIV/AIDS and sexual reproductive health. She has experience working on health policy and HIV/AIDS prevention programs for most at risk populations, family planning, gender, and collaborating with USG agencies. In addition, she has nearly nine years’ experience managing and providing technical assistance to HIV/AIDS programs in the US Government, including in the Africa Bureau, Office of HIV/AIDS, USAID/Regional Development Mission Asia (RDMA), and the Office of US Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC).
Nithya started her public health career in 2001 with USAID's Africa Bureau on the HIV/AIDS team supporting OVC and multisectoral activities, then moved to the Office of HIV/AIDS where she supported USAID Missions in the launch and implementation of the President’s PMTCT Initiative. In 2003, she was one of the first USAID staff to be seconded to OGAC to help launch PEPFAR and support implementation in the field through the interagency core teams. She returned to the Office of HIV/AIDS in 2006 as the Asia Regional Advisor and also served as the Technical Advisor on the Policy Project and Health Systems 20/20 project. In 2007, Nithya moved to USAID/RDMA in Bangkok as a Health Development Advisor on the HIV/AIDS team. While in Bangkok, Nithya provided technical and programmatic support to RDMA’s policy and HIV prevention programs with a focus on RDMA’s regional and China programs.
Nithya holds a BA in Biology from Mary Washington University and Masters in Public Health from the George Washington University with a focus on HIV prevention.
In honor of World AIDS Day myself and co-host Chris Wilson will discuss living with HIV from a real-life perspective. How would the rates of HIV infection differ if the church were more involved and provided well rounded sex education to its youth? Should the church distribute condoms? How many Christians would be HIV negative if they were told more about sex than "Do it before marriage and go to hell"? Join us for a real and raw discussion about sex, stigma, homophobia and the responsibilities of the church.
Join Host Fatima Kourouma as she discusses the intersection of Domestic of Violence and HIV/AIDS with guest speakers Grace Aron and Veronica Saccoh, describing the prevalence and intersection of HIV/AIDS and Domestic Violence in the African Immigrant and Refugee Community, and identifying culturally specific and culturally competent evidence based practice intervention and prevention strategies.

Domestic Violence and HIV/AIDS intersect and most people find that surprising. Abusers are usually promiscuous and move around from one relationship to another. Sometimes having multiple relationships.
How does this play into how the STATUS of HIV/AIDS become a part of the conversation?
It is very important to know where you STAND.

This show will epxlore Gregg Loomis and Journey of Survival:
Author and mental health counselor Nina Bingham discusses Suicide Prevention. She educates not only from her academic knowledge, but shares from her own hard-won life experience in a new and profound way. In private practice since 2003, she has treated individuals and couples with a wide variety of mental health issues. Her fifth book, “Once The Storm Is Over: From Grieving to Healing After The Suicide of My Daughter,” is due out in early 2015. It’s the autobiographical confession of a counselor who lost her teen daughter to suicide. What she learned about love and forgiveness changed her life forever.
Topics discussed on our show are listed below. The full blog article and how to contact Nina can be found here:
We asked Nina to tell us about her work, and her new book, Once The Storm Is Over:
What is the book’s message?
What impact did your daughter’s suicide have on you?
What are some factors that have helped you overcome the grief, and were key to your healing?
If a mental healthcare professional is experiencing symptoms, or one of their family members is, what is your advice for them?
How has coming out of the mental health closet changed your life?
What can be done to address the stigma that has accompanied mental illness in the past?
If our listeners have a friend or family member who is struggling with mental illness, or if they are, what should they do?
Nina Bingham, Cht, AA, BA

In response, some communities are working to reduce the incidents of youth violence and help kids reach their economic, educational, and vocational potential. There are several national projects that are assisting communities examine and address youth violence including, the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention and the Urban Network to Increase Thriving Youth (UNITY).
