Douglas M. Brooks Appointed Director of the Office of National AIDS Policy

Created by:




Today (March 24), President Barack Obama appointed Douglas M. Brooks, MSW, as the Director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP). As a person living with HIV, Brooks has been a long-time advocate and a leading HIV/AIDS policy expert.  He most recently served as Senior Vice President for Community, Health, and Public Policy at the Justice Resource Institute (JRI). 

In his new role with ONAP, Brooks will lead the Administration’s work to reduce new HIV infections, improve health outcomes for people living with HIV, and eliminate HIV health disparities in the United States.

We look forward to working with Brooks as we continue our efforts to achieve an AIDS-free future around the world. Please join us on Facebook and Twitter to congratulate Douglas Brooks on his new appointment!
