The Infectious Diseases Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog examines U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Eric Goosby's recent address to the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) where he reemphasized the Obama administration's commitment to "'maintaining, extending and increasing' the U.S. response to global AIDS." Goosby reflected on the lessons drawn from PEPFAR to date and presented components of the 5-year PEPFAR strategy, the blog notes. Following Goosby's talk, Richard Kamwi, the health minister of Namibia, and Paul Delay, the deputy director of UNAIDS, shared brief remarks, according to the blog (Lubinski, 2/18).
