Ambassador Dybul to Discuss Framework for New Global Health Approach

Ambassador Mark R. Dybul, M.D., will outline guiding principles for a new global health approach focused on the overall health of people and communities, rather than the eradication of specific diseases, during the 2012 Joseph J. Kinyoun Memorial Lecture. Titled “Reshaping Global Health: Translating Scientific Advances into Global Action,” the NIAID-sponsored lecture will take place Tuesday, October 2 at 2 p.m. in the Lipsett Amphitheater, Bldg. 10.

Dybul co-directs the Global Health Law Program in Georgetown University's O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, where he is also a Distinguished Visiting Scholar. He is also the inaugural global health fellow of the George W. Bush Institute.

As former U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator (2006 to 2009), Dybul oversaw the implementation of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), one of the largest international health initiatives in history aimed at addressing a single disease. In his discussion of the future of global health, Dybul will examine the need to reconfigure the funding of global health programs to be more centralized, efficient, innovative, free of conflicts of interest and drawn equitably from local sources.

No stranger to NIH, Dybul came to NIAID in 1995 as a clinical associate in the Laboratory of Immunoregulation and, over time, assumed positions of increasing responsibility, culminating in his appointment as assistant director for medical affairs in the NIAID Office of the Director (2001–2009).

Dybul received his medical degree from Georgetown University and completed a residency in internal medicine at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

NIAID established the Kinyoun Lecture series in 1979 to honor Dr. Joseph J. Kinyoun, who in 1887 founded the Laboratory of Hygiene, the forerunner of NIH, and began a new era of studying and fighting infectious diseases.
