Date:5/28/2008

Renowned pediatrician will lead AIDS research foundation's international program, including its TREAT Asia initiative

NEW YORK, May 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, has appointed Annette Sohn, MD, as vice president for global initiatives and director of TREAT Asia (Therapeutics Research, Education, and AIDS Training in Asia), announced Kevin Robert Frost, amfAR's chief executive officer. Dr. Sohn will take up her appointment on September 1, 2008.

Dr. Sohn is a highly regarded pediatrician and researcher with extensive experience treating HIV/AIDS among women and children in Southeast Asia. She is an assistant professor in the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and former Vietnam country representative for the UCSF Institute for Global Health.

Dr. Sohn is based in Ho Chi Minh City, where she has directed a pediatric HIV research program in collaboration with Children's Hospital #1 and the Ho Chi Minh City AIDS Committee. Her projects there included studies of diagnostic testing and monitoring in HIV-exposed infants, stigma and discrimination in the context of prevention of mother-to-child transmission, and contraception and reproductive health outcomes of HIV-positive women.

She is a former member of amfAR's TREAT Asia steering committee, pediatric network, and the Pediatric HIV Observational Database working group. Dr. Sohn also is a technical advisor to PEPFAR-Vietnam, assisting in-country programs on coordination, protocols, and capacity building for scaling up their comprehensive pediatric antiretroviral treatment programs.

"I am delighted that Annette Sohn will join amfAR in a leadership capacity," Frost said. "Dr. Sohn brings a unique combination of practical medical experience, cultural understanding, groundbreaking research, and a dedication to amfAR's global efforts to defeat the HIV/AIDS epidemic."
