The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria selected former Rwandan minister Donald Kaberuka as chair and Roslyn Morauta of Papua New Guinea as vice chair.

Kaberuka and Morauta were selected by the Global Fund Board following a six-month search, led by the board’s Leadership Nominations Committee, to identify the best leadership pair for the Global Fund.
