Dr. Paul Farmer, UN Deputy Special Envoy for Haiti, and Dr. Eric Goosby, UN Global AIDS Ambassador, draw a large crowd to an early-bird session on Haiti at the International AIDS Conference. Hosted by the Global Health Council the session aims to explain the devastation wrought by January's earthquake - and offer plans for rebuilding.

Dr. Jean W. Pape, founder of Gates Award-winning NGO, GHESKIO, talks about how although well-positioned to tackle HIV/AIDS the wholesale destruction caused by the quake has taken the country's struggles to another level. Despite this, both Pape and Farmer see in Haiti the opportunity to, in Bill Clinton's words, "build back better".
