Now that President Bush has publicly committed to keeping the Office of National AIDS Policy, one of the names being floated to head it is A. Cornelius Baker, executive director of the Washington, D.C.based Whitman-Walker Clinic, Health News Daily reports. Baker served under the first Bush administration and on several committees at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is a former director of the National Association of People Living With AIDS. Some supporters say that Baker, who is black, would be an ideal choice because he represents the fastest-growing segment of individuals in the United States who are positive, according to the Daily. Also reportedly under consideration to head ONAP is openly gay former U.S. congressman Steve Gunderson.
