How can art be a tool of education and information
sharing? Are artists able to redirect how people think
and act? Can art save lives? And how are artists essential
to anti-AIDS efforts? These are some of the questions
deliberated at a special dissemination organized by

the Government Hospital of Thoracic Medicine (GHTM),
Tambaram, Chenna, India on Monday, 7 September 2009.
Sharing their perspectives on the issue at
the dissemination were Mr. Andrew Simkin, the U.S.
Consul General, Chennai, who delivered the Keynote
Address; Dr. Revathi, Assistant Project Director,
Tamil Nadu State AIDS Control Society (TANSACS); Dr.
C Chandraseker, Superintendent, GHTM and Dr. David
Gere, Director, Art|Global Health Center at University
of California, Los Angeles.
