New Documents of Note for Nov. 15: Microfinance, New Orleans, and HIV Prevention

Here are interesting and timely selections recently received at the CU Boulder Libraries. This week's items are all Congressional Hearings, which provide an excellent level of detail on their subjects, as well as input and testimony from recognized experts in their areas. Hearings are available in print, as well as electronically from a variety of sources such as FDsys (linked here) or via LexisNexis Congressional.

Promoting Small and Micro Enterprise in Haiti
A fascinating topic of sustained interest for Economists, especially as the subject garnered a Nobel Peace Prize for India’s Muhammad Yunus in 2006.

Post-Katrina Recovery: Restoring Health Care in the New Orleans Region
Here combined are two topics that may very well define the legacies of our most recent Presidents – access to health care, and the destruction and recovery of the city of New Orleans.

The Domestic Epidemic is Worse Than We Thought: A Wake-Up Call for HIV Prevention
A topic truly without boundaries, HIV prevention is the focus of worldwide attention, yet prevention practices encouraged by U.S.-funded programs remain highly politicized.
