Dr. James Gita Hakim

Physician, Scientist and Innovator

This series was developed in recognition of an incredible researcher and human who impressed the world with his humble nature and research prowess. Dr. James Hakim worked with Drs. Gibb and Mugyenyi and other scientists tirelessly pioneering some of the most important science impacting PLWHA in developing countries.  James was among the first doctors to introduce antiretroviral therapy (ARVs) in Africa – Interacademies.

James was a  supporter of just and equitable solutions to global epidemics. In these interviews with some of his friends and colleagues, they reflect on the intense HIV AIDS situation in Africa in the early 1980s and into early 2000. Peter and Di speak about their professional relationship with him while sharing thoughts on the current situation with COVID, its similarity to the start of the HIV epidemic.
