ON A HOT OCTOBER MORNING, A DOZEN OR SO people gather at the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, just outside Tel Aviv. They all appear to be somewhere in the very early to later stages of middle age, many are wearing short-sleeved shirts, some sporting baseball hats. Most of them are men, with only a few women. Huddled in a small hospital room, they crowd around a bed watching a medical simulation being performed on a lifesized dummy.

Comprised of medical experts in the field of AIDS from various African countries, including Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda and Zambia, this group is taking part in an intensive, week-long conference, which participants hope will lead to increased cooperation between Israel and African countries on tackling the scourge of AIDS.
