Ambassador Goosby Pens Last Blog Post as U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator

November 4, 2013

"It is with a degree of sadness but also an enormous debt of gratitude that I post my final blog as U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and head of the Office of Global Health Diplomacy," Ambassador Eric Goosby writes in the State Department's "DipNote" blog. The success of PEPFAR and "arriv[ing] at a moment in which creating an AIDS-free generation is truly within our reach … has only been possible because thousands of committed and compassionate individuals wake up each day and go to bed each night thinking about how we can all do more and do it better," he writes. "This epidemic has wrought untold harm on our world, stolen millions of lives, destroyed families and entire communities, and very nearly entire nations. But it also brought out the best in people -- in the United States and around the planet," he states, adding, "We can find no better way to honor those we have lost than to keep pushing forward, and to complete the task that we began more than 30 years ago" (11/1). The Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" features excerpts from an interview with Goosby (Barton, 11/1).
