President Obama Nominates CDC's Global HIV/AIDS Director Deborah Birx as Global AIDS Coordinator

January 10, 2014

"The White House has nominated a physician scientist whose career began three decades ago with a focus on immunology, vaccine research, and global health, to succeed Global AIDS Coordinator Ambassador Dr. Eric Goosby and lead the President's Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief. Dr. Deborah Birx, who as director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Prevention and Control's Global AIDS Program serves as point person for PEPFAR implementation at the CDC, was named today to fill the post that has stood vacant since November 1, when Ambassador Goosby left the position to return to clinical research and practice. ... Birx will still need to be confirmed by the Senate, following a hearing in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee," according to the Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog (Barton, 1/9). Additional information is available in a press release from the White House (1/9).
