Who will be the next U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator?

ACT UP AIDS activists protested at the United 
Nations when Uganda's successful 
HIV prevention program was undermined by 
PEPFAR, the U.S. financed AIDS relief plan with 
its restictions to prevention efforts promoting 
abstinence-only-until-heterosexual-married-monogamy.

AIDS Advocates Call for Open Process to Choose the Next Global AIDS Coordinator

I wrote about Obama's un-reappointment of Mark Dybul last week, 01/22/2009, and about the issue of who will become the next U.S. Global AIDS Coodinator, so let me just add, this week, that I hope Reverend Rick Warren will not play a large role in this decision, though he is very interested, and he has been very much involved in PEPFAR, the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, thus far:
