From the article: "The ability of the world to mobilize quickly in the fight against COVID-19 owes a lot to the groundwork laid in the fight against HIV, said Dr. Deborah Birx, U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and U.S. Special Representative for Global Health Diplomacy. She is a member of the White House's coronavirus task force. 'It's the platforms that we've built together and the relationships that are going to be our solutions not only for HIV but our response to COVID-19 around the world,' she said in remarks at the virtual AIDS conference."
