ONE President and CEO Michael Elliott released the following statement on the announcement of Mark Dybul as the new Executive Director of The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria:
“I want to congratulate Mark Dybul on his appointment as the Executive Director of The Global Fund. Mark is a dedicated doctor, a passionate global health advocate, and a deft politician who knows how to build consensus. At PEPFAR, he built bridges across party lines, between policymakers and activists, and between the U.S. and Africa. I know he will adopt a truly global approach and bring the best minds and hearts from across the world to drive forward the vital work of the Global Fund. We look forward to working with him in the months ahead to support the Global Fund’s critical replenishment process next fall.”
ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of more than 3.5 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Strictly nonpartisan, we raise public awareness and press political leaders to combat AIDS and preventable diseases, increase investments in agriculture and nutrition, and demand greater transparency in poverty-fighting programs. ONE is not a grant-making organization and does not solicit funding from the public or receive government funding. ONE is funded almost entirely by a handful of philanthropists and foundations. We achieve change through advocacy. Our teams in Washington, D.C., London, Johannesburg, Brussels, Berlin, and Paris educate and lobby governments to shape policy solutions that save and improve millions of lives.
