President Joe Biden has nominated the director of the Africa Centre for Disease Control, Dr John Nkengasong, to lead PEPFAR, the world’s largest HIV/Aids programme. If confirmed, the Cameroon-born virologist will be the first person of African origin to head PEPFAR.

This is very good news. All our wishes of success for this new challenge!
