International AIDS Conference: Dr. Valdiserri Talks to Ambassador Eric Goosby

July 26, 2010

This article was cross-posted from the AIDS.gov blog. Dr. Ron Valdiserri is Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health, Infectious Diseases, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

On July 22, 2010, during the International AIDS Conference, I talked with Ambassador Eric Goosby, who serves as the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, and who oversees the implementation of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) program.

PEPFAR is the United States' response to the global HIV/AIDS epidemic -- but I was interested in getting Dr. Goosby's impression of what the news coming from the conference might mean for those working on HIV/AIDS in the United States.

I also asked him to share his impressions about the new National HIV/AIDS Strategy and to give those of us responding to the domestic epidemic some advice, based on his work in the thirty-one PEPFAR partner countries.
