About Allan Rosenfield, M.D.
As a member of amfAR’s board of trustees from 1997 to 2008, Dr. Rosenfield regularly provided Congressional testimony on behalf of amfAR in support of AIDS research and prevention initiatives, including syringe exchange programs. His research focused on reducing maternal mortality in the developing world as well as decreasing the spread of HIV/AIDS among mothers and children, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa and southern Asia. Dr. Rosenfield was among the first to call attention to the ethical imperative of offering HIV-positive mothers ongoing care and treatment for HIV after pregnancy.
