U.S. deputy assistant secretary of state for health and science Jack Chow was named head of the World Health Organization's new AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Department on Monday. Chow, who served as Secretary of State Colin Powell's special representative on AIDS, will assume his duties with WHO in the fall. "The United States considers [AIDS, TB, and malaria] as global health priorities," Chow said. "Once I'm an assistant director general, I will serve all nations afflicted by these diseases." Chow, who received his medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco, said that his interest in the fight against AIDS began while studying in the 1980s, when researchers first discovered HIV. Chow also holds master's degrees in public administration from Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and business administration from the University of Chicago.
