Ambassador Eric Goosby, U.S. global AIDS coordinator and head of the State Department's Office of Global Health Diplomacy, on Tuesday released a statement on the passing of Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.). "The five-term Senator was a tireless advocate for [PEPFAR] as well as the Ryan White CARE Act," according to the statement, which adds, "Senator Lautenberg's tenacious efforts on behalf of those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS had an unquestionable impact at home and around the globe" (6/4). Also on Tuesday, the United Nations Foundation released a similar statement from Maureen Greenwood-Basken, executive director of women, girls and population at the foundation, which reads, "The loss of Senator Lautenberg -- a champion for human rights and women's rights around the world -- is deeply felt today. Throughout his career, Sen. Lautenberg was an outspoken proponent of international family planning programs and reproductive health and rights to ensure that women and families everywhere have access to the services they need to live healthy and productive lives" (6/4).
