Goosby and Fauci to Headline Special Session at IAS 2009

Conference organizers announced today that recently confirmed US Global AIDS Coordinator Eric Goosby and NIAID Director Anthony Fauci will speak at an IAS 2009 special session entitled, Global HIV Research and Policy and Programme Implementation under the New United States Administration. The session will be held on Monday, 20 July at 13:00 and chaired by Global Fund Executive Director Michel Kazatchkine.

This is the first major international AIDS conference for Ambassador Goosby in his role as Coordinator of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the US government’s multi-billion dollar global AIDS programme. Dr. Fauci, who has spoken at previous IAS conferences and is always a big draw, will discuss US government-funded HIV research. The session is sure to attract a standing room only crowd eager to hear details of the Obama Administration’s plans. Those unable to watch in person can access a free webcast of the session on the conference website later that day.

  1. Monday 20th is going to be a thrilling and hectic day as conference participants and volunteers will listen and see Goosby (US Global AIDS Coordinator)speak in the conference. I'm particularly eager to see and experience this day.
