October 21, 2013
The Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog reports on the pending departure of Ambassador Eric Goosby, head of the U.S. State Department's Office of Global Health Diplomacy and the U.S. global AIDS coordinator, noting "his departure date is set for as early as October 26." The blog states, "After four years of leading the U.S. Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator and its [PEPFAR program] with an unprecedented acceleration of treatment roll out, scale up of evidence-based action, and efforts to reach those hardest hit by the epidemic, Goosby will leave a lasting and significant legacy, HIV response advocates say." The blog adds, "They are urging that his replacement be named swiftly to ensure work that has expanded in scope and ambition under his watch continues uninterrupted" (Barton, 10/18).
