The George W. Bush Institute congratulates Ambassador Mark R. Dybul on his appointment as the Executive Director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. Ambassador Dybul is the inaugural Fellow in Global Health at the Bush Institute and helps guide and support the Institute’s work to improve the health of impoverished people throughout the world. Ambassador Dybul was a key architect in the development of Global Health's inaugural project,  the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon (PRRR) initiative.  PRRR is an innovative public-private partnership to combat cervical and breast cancer in Africa and Latin American.  Ambassador Dybul currently serves as co-chairperson of PRRR Steering Committee, where he also represents the Bush Institute. “Ambassador Dybul is an exceptionally talented global health leader,” said Dr. Eric G. Bing, Senior Fellow and Director of Global Health at the Bush Institute.  “The Global Fund will be in extremely good hands with him at the helm.” Ambassador Dybul previously served as the United States’ Global AIDS Ambassador under President Bush, where he led the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), spearheading the largest international health initiative ever created to fight a single disease. PEPFAR was created to improve HIV prevention, treatment, and care for those in low-income countries. Since its inception, PEPFAR has supported life-saving HIV treatment for over 4.5 million people around the world. As Executive Director, Ambassador Dybul will lead the Global Fund’s activities in attracting and disbursing resources to prevent and treat HIV and AIDS, TB, and malaria.
