U.N. Secretary-General Appoints Ray Chambers as His First Special Envoy for the Financing of the Health-Related Millennium Development Goals
Date:3/1/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 01, 2013

GBCHealth is pleased to announce today that the UN Secretary-General has appointed Ray Chambers as his first Special Envoy for Financing of the Health Related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and has renewed his mandate on malaria.

In this expanded role, Mr. Chambers, who is Co-chair of GBCHealth, will promote increased investment by the public and private sectors to reduce child and maternal mortality, HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and other diseases by 31 December 2015, the internationally agreed deadline for achieving the MDGs.

“Mr. Chambers has been very successful in mobilizing resources and public-private partnership in the fight against malaria,” said UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. “Now, with the urgent need to secure funding for the health-related MDGs, I have asked the Special Envoy to develop a business plan to ensure that we have the resources to achieve our goals.”

Since his appointment as Special Envoy for Malaria in February 2008, visibility, awareness, and funding for malaria have each increased exponentially, with over $4 billion raised, over 400 million mosquito nets distributed and millions of treatment courses administered.

Yet difficulties in bringing malaria deaths down to near-zero by the end of 2015 highlight a broader challenge: ensuring the availability of financial resources. The Secretary-General’s appointment of Mr. Chambers to this expanded role seeks to catalyze new efforts in this regard.

“This new post is essential for financing of the urgent global health targets reflected in the MDGs, and Ray Chambers is the ideal person to lead it,” said Gary Cohen, Acting CEO of GBCHealth and CEO of the MDG Health Alliance.

Mr. Chambers, a philanthropist, is the founding Chairman of the Points of Light Foundation; co-founder, with Former Secre
