BC-CfE supports nomination of Dr. Deborah Birx for Global AIDS Coordinator

10 January, 2014 - VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - U.S. President Barack Obama has announced the nomination of Dr. Deborah Birx for Global AIDS Coordinator, a move applauded by the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS (BC-CfE).

The Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator administers the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the U.S. government initiative to help save the lives of those suffering from HIV/AIDS around the world.

"Dr. Birx has spent her career on the frontline of the fight against HIV and AIDS, demonstrating the leadership and expertise required to advance our collective goal of achieving an HIV and AIDS-free generation," said Dr. Julio Montaner, director of the BC-CfE. "In Dr. Birx, the President has selected a worthy successor to Drs. Mark Dybul and Eric Goosby. Her advocacy on behalf of PEPFAR's mission to expand treatment and prevention in communities hit hardest by this epidemic ensures a continued commitment to improving the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS around the world."

Dr. Birx has served as director of the Division of Global HIV/AIDS in the Center for Global Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) since 2009. Prior to that she filled the role of director of the CDC's Global AIDS Programs for the National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention, from 2005-2009.
