Washington Post Profiles Helene Gayle, President, CEO of CARE USA

May 17, 2006

The Washington Post on Wednesday profiled Helene Gayle, president and CEO of CARE USA, an Atlanta-based international humanitarian group (Boustany, Washington Post, 5/17). Gayle, former director of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's HIV, Tuberculosis and Reproductive Health program, was named as CARE USA's new president and CEO in December 2005 after serving five years with the foundation. Gayle, who also serves as president of the International AIDS Society, has 20 years of experience with HIV/AIDS, including previously directing CDC's National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention (Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report, 12/5/05). Donna Shalala, president of the University of Miami and former HHS secretary, said that Gayle "really represents a new generation of health diplomats," adding that she is "experienced at negotiating at the highest levels of government or with a sex worker in Calcutta." Gayle said she wants to have a broad impact on population health. "When you talk to people working on the front lines of survival, I feel there is nothing better I can do with my life than enable them to do what they do," Gayle said (Washington Post, 5/17).
