Goosby Discusses Global AIDS Fight at CSIS Event

June 29, 2011

Ambassador Eric Goosby, the U.S. global AIDS coordinator, said that a recent $75 million pledge from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Chevron and Johnson & Johnson could help "eliminate new HIV-infected children by 2015 and keep mothers alive," McClatchy/News & Observer reports.

"Goosby's comments followed the annual United Nations High Level Meeting on AIDS earlier this month, where world leaders launched a global plan to end mother-to-child HIV transmission," the news service reports. "Goosby told an audience at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank, that [PEPFAR] has been successful. Each country has seen roughly a 40 percent decrease in deaths since receiving PEPFAR help, he said," the news service reports. Goosby called for other countries to do more to fight HIV/AIDS wordwide. "We need to challenge our colleagues in Europe and the rest of the world to play their part," he said (Patrick, 6/28). A video of the event is available from CSIS (6/28).
