Malaysian Newspaper Profiles Ambassador Goosby

Malaysia’s “The Star” profiles Ambassador Eric Goosby, head of the U.S. State Department’s Office of Global Health Diplomacy and the U.S. global AIDS coordinator, recounting his early career as a doctor in San Francisco, where he treated HIV/AIDS patients at the San Francisco General Hospital. “Now, almost three decades on, he is still involved in the fight against HIV, his ultimate aim being to achieve a generation free of the virus,” according to the newspaper. “His role is to lead all of the international HIV/AIDS efforts of the U.S. government,” the newspaper notes and includes comments from Goosby on the cost associated with working toward an AIDS-free generation, the “‘extraordinary’ importance” of discussion about ending stigma, and the significance of continued commitment to ending AIDS (Edwards, 9/8).
