The views of foreign and funding institutions will be represented by Dr. Cynthia Haq, Professor of Family Medicine and Population Health Sciences at the University of Wisconsin, School of Medicine and Public Health and Founding Director of the Center for Global Health, as well as U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Ambassador Eric Goosby.

Hundreds of Ethiopian medical professionals from the Diaspora are expected to attend the annual gathering.
