The UN’s goal of eliminating AIDS as a public health threat by 2030 positions the global health community at a pivotal moment, riding the successes of antiretroviral treatments and combating the remaining gaps in care.

The Hon. Mark Dybul, M.D., is the faculty co-director for Georgetown's Center for Global Health and Quality. A well-recognized global health expert and humanitarian, Dr. Dybul served as executive director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.
