Originally hailing from Tullamore, Ireland, Professor Father Michael Kelly has spent more than 50 years living and working in Zambia, where he is now a citizen. Since 2006, the Irish Aid Professor Fr. Michael Kelly Lecture on HIV and AIDS has been held annually to honour his lifetime contributions to tackling HIV and AIDS, and to reducing their associated stigma, discrimination, and impacts on human rights. This book compiles Father Michael’s Lectures and is a permanent record of the inspiration and hope which he has given to so many women, men and children – those affected by HIV as well as those working across the globe to support them. In these annual lectures, Father Michael has addressed audiences drawn from the entire spectrum of those working in politics, health, education, international development and humanitarian action.
