What AIDS Has Taught Us: Lessons From the Global Fight Against HIV and the New Global Health Agenda

Tuesday, Nov. 4  |   4:30pm  |  Filene Auditorium, Moore Hall

Eric Goosby has dedicated his professional life to fighting HIV/AIDS from treating patients to running international programs. After serving four years in the U.S. State Department as Ambassador-at-Large and U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, overseeing the implementation of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Ambassador Goosby returned to the University of California, San Francisco where he is Professor of Medicine and Director of the Institute for Global Health Delivery and Diplomacy.

While at the State Department, he also led the Office of Global Health Diplomacy, advancing the United States’ global health mission to improve and save lives and foster sustainability through a shared global responsibility. As CEO and Chief Medical Officer of Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation, 2001-2009, he played a key role in the development and implementation of HIV/AIDS national treatment scale-up plans in South Africa, Rwanda, China and Ukraine. During the Clinton Administration, Ambassador Goosby was Director of the Ryan White Care Act at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and later, served as Deputy Director of the White House National AIDS Policy Office and Director of the Office of HIV/AIDS Policy at HHS.
