O Tesouro, by Eça de Queirós (theatrical adaptation)
In O Tesouro (The Treasure) three down-at-heel noblemen, the de Medranhos brothers, stumble across a chest full of Moorish gold in the forest of Roquelanes and plan to carry it up the mountains to their wrecked manor, the Paços de Medranhos. The brothers' plan, it goes without saying, fails.

PH 290.11 Session 12 caps the course's lecture content by recruiting three global health giants to discuss the role and responsibilities of public and private organizations in the response to the global HIV and HCV epidemics. From policy advances to facilitate access to life saving antiretrovirals for millions of patients, to challenges in regulatory infrastructure, to the rocky path for point-of-care diagnostics and treatment monitoring technologies, to the recognition that treatment is prevention and key to any containment strategy -- the lessons provided by the expansion and entrenchment of the HIV epidemic, and successes and failures in the public health response are unparalleled in the global health arena. The hesitant but nascent recognition that the HCV epidemic offers equally imperative opportunities and deserves just as strong a response is a chance to reflect on these lessons and find ways to move forward without stumbling on many of the issues already encountered in HIV. The perspectives and reflections of these three global health leaders on these topics provide an exclusive and unique window on global health and will be of great interest to the wider Berkeley, UCSF and Bay Area community.
