She has been involved in controversial issues such as the price of medicine for treating AIDS and she was a primary leader in revising international laws on intellectual properties and patents -- particularly in countries where the pandemic reaches alarming levels.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
