AIDS.gov Blog Examines Global Fund's Future

February 12, 2013

"During January's World Economic Forum, international leaders welcomed former U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Mark Dybul as the new head of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria," Deborah Derrick, president of Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, writes in the AIDS.gov blog. "Assuming his post as executive director of the world's largest health financier, Dr. Dybul is poised to build on the momentum of recent scientific advances and bolster the fight for a healthier future." Derrick highlights Dybul's prior experience in the field, noting he "served as one of PEPFAR's principal architects"; discusses institutional changes undertaken by the Global Fund last year; and writes, "With the Global Fund more efficient and effective than ever and PEPFAR making its Blueprint a reality, we can move ever closer to an AIDS-free generation and a healthier world for all of us" (2/11).
