Irvine -- On Subversity airing Monday, July 31, 2006, we chat with an AIDS program manager based in Hanoi, Vietnam, about the situation of AIDS in Vietnam.
We talk with Tenley Mogk is the HIV/AIDS Program Manager in Vietnam for Catholic Relief Services (CRS).

Prior to joining CRS, Tenley served as the Reproductive Health Program Officer for USAID in the Democratic Republic of Congo, worked on a vaccination study for PATH in Indonesia, facilitated civil society initiatives for the STAR Network of World Learning in post-war Kosovo, and monitored the repatriation of Vietnamese nationals from Hong Kong for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. She holds a B.A. from the University of Michigan, her home state, and an MPH from Columbia University. She speaks fluent Vietnamese and lives in Hanoi, which she calls her "favorite village of 3 million people."
