HRC Statement on Departure of White House AIDS Czar Douglas Brooks

by Liz Halloran March 24, 2016


Today, marking Douglas Brooks’ final day leading the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, Chad Griffin, President of the HRC, released the following statement:

"Douglas Brooks' extraordinary service will have a lasting impact on the ongoing work to end HIV and AIDS. From elevating the communities hit hardest by HIV, including gay and bisexual men and transgender women, to advancing funding for evidence-based syringe programs and the critical inclusion of PrEP as part of the federal response to the epidemic, his accomplishments have brought critical resources and attention to the fight. Nowhere were Mr. Brooks' efforts more apparent than in the update of our National HIV & AIDS Strategy, which has put an AIDS-free generation clearly in sight. As an openly gay, Black man living with HIV, Mr. Brooks brought to his role a level of authenticity and perspective that has made real differences in the lives of millions of Americans nationwide. He will be sorely missed and we owe him a debt of gratitude."
