Last month we told you that Chris Austin was invited to a Conversations With America roundtable discussion on the 10-year anniversary of PEPFAR. He discussed efforts currently in progress to create an AIDS-free generation in Africa, including the creation of volunteer-based groups dedicated to community development, using our model as an example. Here's the video
Through Conversations With America, leaders of national non-governmental organizations have the opportunity to discuss foreign policy and global issues with senior State Department officials. These conversations aim to provide candid views of the ways in which leaders from the foreign affairs community are engaging the Department on pressing foreign policy issues.
Chris served in Kenya from 2003 to 2005. He has been on the RPCV/W Board of Directors for 3 years and served as President for 2. He recently announced his plans to step aside when his term expires in July, citing an interest in bringing the next generation of RPCV/W leaders to the foreground.
