This week, Dr. Peter Mugyenyi is visiting Washington from Uganda, where he directs the Joint Clinical Research Center, the largest PEPFAR implementer in East Africa. Dr. Mugyenyi was one of a half-dozen people in the room when PEPFAR was conceived back in 2003. As one of the program’s most eloquent supporters, Dr. Mugyenyi has recently begun voicing grave concern about the near flat-funding of PEPFAR’s budget.

Dr. Mugyenyi will be testifying about this issue on Thursday at a hearing before a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee.
