Statement from Joanne Carter, Executive Director of RESULTS/RESULTS Educational Fund

RESULTS is thrilled to congratulate Ambassador Mark Dybul on his appointment today as the new Executive Director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. He is enormously qualified to lead the Global Fund at this critical juncture, as its mission grows from controlling AIDS, TB and malaria to ending them. Ambassador Dybul exemplifies the strong bipartisan leadership that helped create and has supported the Global Fund and its partner countries to save nearly nine million lives since it was first launched a decade ago.

Ambassador Dybul has held leadership roles in both government and academia. During his tenure running the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Ambassador Dybul prioritized expanding a robust fight against the disease. With the support of allies around the world and a bold and practical vision, Ambassador Dybul will build on the successes of the last ten years to enhance the Global Fund’s impact and help catalyze momentum to end the diseases.
