Date:6/7/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 07, 2013

Ray Chambers, the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Financing the Health Millennium Development Goals and for Malaria and the Chairman of the MDG Health Alliance – today announced two senior staff appointments.

Suprotik Basu, who has served as Managing Director for Chambers’ Special Envoy Office, will become Chief Executive Officer of a newly combined organization focused on the financing and achievement of the Health MDGs. Basu’s oversight will include both the Special Envoy Office and the MDG Health Alliance.

“With only 940 days remaining to save the lives of 4.4 million children and 230,000 mothers, we have no time to waste,” said Chambers. “Protik has a proven track record in the fight against malaria, and he has the vision we require to overcome among the most pressing global-health challenges of the day. He has my complete confidence to lead our expanded work across all of the Health MDGs at a critical juncture.”

David Alport, who previously served as Vice President of Communications for GBCHealth, will assume the role of Senior Vice President of Communications, overseeing communications and media initiatives for the Special Envoy Office and for the MDG Health Alliance.

“David is a one of the most thoughtful and well-regarded professionals in the business,” Chambers said. “His strategic approach to communications will ensure that we reach our intended targets with the right messages to help achieve our global health goals. He will be a terrific addition to our team.”

The announcements follow Chambers’ own appointment in March 2013 by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as his first Special Envoy for Financing the Health MDGs,expanding his mandate as Special Envoy to end deaths from malaria. The Millennium Development Goals, which come due on December 31, 2015, are a set of humanitarian targets agreed to in 2000 by 193 memb
