PEPFAR Scientific Advisory Board Convenes in D.C.

In mid-November Professor Sofia Gruskin participated in the first meeting of the reconstituted PEPFAR Scientific Advisory Board. The committee was established under the general authority of the Secretary of State and the Department of State to help advise scientific, implementation and policy issues relating to PEPFAR’s work in relation to the global HIV response. Professor Gruskin traveled to Washington, D.C., to participate in the meeting held under the auspices of Ambassador-at-Large Deborah Birx. The board’s input from the meeting will be written up as recommendations and guidance to support PEPFAR’s activities moving forward.
