International AIDS Conference Day 5: Updates From Vienna With Carl Dieffenbach

July 22, 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.

During the International AIDS Conference, I sat down with Carl Dieffenbach, the Director of the Division of AIDS at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is part of the National Institutes of Health. (Dr. Dieffenbach is a regular guest blogger for AIDS.gov).
