Jesse Milan, Jr. Named AIDS United Interim President and CEO

The AIDS United Board of Trustees has named Jesse Milan, Jr., a tireless community advocate and nationally recognized leader on HIV/AIDS policies and programs, as interim president and CEO. After participating in last week’s meetings of the Board of Trustees and Public Policy Committee, Milan begins working a regular schedule in the AIDS United office on June 20, to allow 10 days of overlap before the outgoing president and CEO departs on June 30. Milan will serve through the selection and start of a permanent hire, anticipated in fall of 2016.

A person living with HIV for over three decades, Milan is a recognized leader and thought expert in the HIV community. He brings 30-years of experience in executive roles in the public and private sectors and has directed multi-million dollar budgets and staff for federal, state, local and global public health agencies. Notably, beginning in 2002 he served a five-year appointment as co-chair of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)/Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Advisory Committee on HIV and STD Prevention and Treatment (CHAC) and in 2007 was designated a Fulbright Senior Specialist in Global HIV/AIDS. A lawyer by background, Milan has received numerous honors including the 2015 Public Service Award from the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC).

Most recently, Milan has been working as both a leadership development consultant with the Dorrier Underwood firm, and as a subject matter expert consultant for clients including the CDC, NMAC, HRSA and the Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy, within the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health. Further, he currently serves as Chair Emeritus on the Black AIDS Institute board of directors, on the Scientific Advisory Board for the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and on the Dean’s Advisory Council for the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health.

“We are thrilled that Jesse Milan is joining AIDS United during this time of transition,” said Dr. Robert Hilliard Jr., chair of the AIDS United Board of Trustees. “Not only does he bring decades of leadership, management experience and pre-existing relationships with our funders, partners and grantees, he also brings a firm understanding of the work required to move the needle on our mission of ending the AIDS epidemic in this country.”

The national search for a permanent president and CEO is spearheaded by recruitment agency WBB+McCormack, selected because of their expansive experience working alongside progressive, social justice-focused organizations and their great familiarity with the HIV/AIDS sector. A full profile for the position will be posted by WBB+McCormack in early July, and interested candidates can submit themselves at any point for consideration by contacting WBB+McCormack at The Board of Trustees plans to select and announce the permanent president and CEO in the fall of 2016.

“I have admired AIDS United since its founding and believe in the pivotal role it plays in our nation’s response to the HIV epidemic,” said Milan. “AIDS United’s work, at the intersection of HIV policy and strong programs, is unparalleled and I’m thrilled to join its team and serve in this new role, even if just for a short while.”

About AIDS United:
AIDS United’s mission is to end the AIDS epidemic in the U.S., through strategic grant-making, capacity building, formative research and policy. Formed out of a merger between National AIDS Fund and AIDS Action in late 2010, AIDS United works to ensure access to life-saving HIV/AIDS care and prevention services and to advance sound HIV/AIDS-related policy for U.S. populations and communities most impacted by the epidemic. To date, our strategic grant-making initiatives have directly funded more than $98 million to local communities, and have leveraged more than $115 million in additional investments for programs that include, but are not limited to, HIV prevention, access to care, capacity building, harm reduction and advocacy.
