A New Chapter in Infectious Disease Leadership - Dr. Jeanne Marrazzo Appointed Director of NIAID


Dr. Jeanne Marrazzo

We at SisterLove are deeply committed to advancing public health and promoting well-being for all individuals, particularly those who have been historically marginalized and underserved.


Our mission is to empower, educate, and advocate for comprehensive sexual and reproductive health, with a focus on communities that face systemic barriers to quality care. We acknowledge the significance of recent developments, such as the appointment of Dr. Jeanne Marrazzo as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).


Dr. Marrazzo's extensive expertise and leadership in the field of infectious diseases, including her significant contributions to HIV research, resonate deeply with our own objectives to address health disparities, promote education, and facilitate access to vital healthcare services.


As an organization rooted in compassion and inclusivity, we believe that her appointment symbolizes a significant step forward in strengthening collaborative efforts to combat infectious diseases, with a particular emphasis on HIV, while underscoring the importance of equitable healthcare delivery.


In light of this development, SisterLove reaffirms its dedication to:

  1. HIV Advocacy: Drawing inspiration from Dr. Marrazzo's remarkable achievements, we will continue to advocate for increased awareness, prevention, testing, and treatment options for HIV. Our advocacy efforts aim to dispel stigma, encourage open conversations, and ensure that no individual faces discrimination based on their HIV status.

  2. Community Engagement: We will continue to engage with and uplift marginalized communities, recognizing the vital role they play in shaping effective public health strategies. Our commitment extends to fostering open dialogues, advocating for community needs, and ensuring that the voices of those most impacted are heard.

  3. Education and Advocacy: Building upon the principles set forth by Dr. Marrazzo's exemplary leadership, we will redouble our efforts to educate individuals about infectious diseases, including prevention, testing, and treatment options. We recognize that informed communities are better equipped to make decisions that positively impact their health outcomes.

  4. Access to Quality Care: SisterLove is dedicated to breaking down barriers that prevent individuals from accessing essential healthcare services. We will collaborate with partners, policymakers, and healthcare providers to advocate for policies that expand access to testing, treatment, and care, especially among vulnerable populations.

  5. Research and Innovation: Dr. Marrazzo's accomplishments underscore the significance of research in advancing medical knowledge and transforming healthcare landscapes. SisterLove will strive to support and engage in research initiatives that address the unique needs of marginalized communities, fostering innovation that leads to equitable health solutions.


In the spirit of collaboration and progress that Dr. Marrazzo's appointment signifies, SisterLove

remains steadfast in its pursuit of a world where comprehensive sexual and reproductive health is a reality for all, and where the impact of HIV is minimized through education, advocacy, and compassionate care.
