Mark Dybul Says Partnership Replacing Paternalism in Global Health

December 13, 2013

"Mark Dybul, executive director of the Global Fund, said the paternalism overshadowing relations between rich countries and poor in global health is giving way to an era of partnership that owes much to the vision of Nelson Mandela," the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria states in a press release. The press release summarizes Dybul's closing speech at the 17th International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA), in which he "paid a rousing tribute to the late South African leader, saying Mandela 'broke the silence on HIV in Africa and he broke the silence on HIV in the world.'" The press release also describes speeches delivered at the conference by South African Constitutional Court Justice Edwin Cameron and ICASA Chair Robert Soudré (12/11).
