Bush, and Pamela and Jack Egan Visiting Professor at Duke, will explore key global health and international development issues with Mark Dybul, the Executive Director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and former head of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

The discussion will touch on Dybul’s personal background and sense of calling in global health, his experiences in helping design and implement PEPFAR, his work leading and reforming the Global Fund, and the new horizons that improved data and new prevention approaches that have opened up in AIDS policy.  Dybul is one of the great humanitarian physicians of our time, and helped oversee the implementation of the largest American work of mercy since the Marshall Plan.
