(PRWEB) March 18, 2010 -- Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation today announced that Dr Megan Dunbar has been appointed Vice President of Programs and will join the organization on the 5th of April.

Megan Dunbar, DrPH, has been a Prevention Consultant at Pangaea for several years and is a leader in global HIV prevention, care and treatment efforts focused on women and youth. Dr. Dunbar has served as principal investigator on federally and privately funded research projects in Tanzania and Zimbabwe.

Ben Plumley, Chief Executive Officer of Pangaea, said, “Dr Dunbar has an outstanding track record in designing and evaluating HIV prevention and care strategies, particularly for women and girls.

I look forward to working with our country partners and supporters to build targeted HIV programs that make a real, lasting difference in the lives of all people affected by AIDS in developing countries.”

Dr Dunbar’s research and program portfolio has centered on reducing the risk and effects of HIV among women and girls, including orphans and vulnerable children. Her focus has been to develop and evaluate interventions that combine improved educational and economic opportunities with programs designed to encourage gender equity, positive health behaviors and improve access to care and treatment for vulnerable groups.
