Harvard-trained doctor to lead Global Fund
Michel Kazatchkine, France's AIDS ambassador and a Harvard-educated doctor specializing in infectious diseases, was selected today as the new head of the $7 billion Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
Kazatchkine, 60, takes over an organization that in just over five years has provided grants to 450 programs in 136 countries, accounting for two-thirds of all international funding against TB and malaria, and 20 percent of global funding to fight AIDS.
From 1977 to 1981, Kazatchkine lived in Boston while doing post-doctoral work at Brigham and Women's Hospital as a member of Harvard's Immunology Department.
