Management Sciences for Health Welcomes Mark Andrew Green’s Nomination for USAID Administrator
Arlington, VA -- Management Sciences for Health (MSH) is encouraged by the nomination of Mark Andrew Green to serve as the next Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Mr. Green serves as President of the International Republican Institute and is the former U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania, where he oversaw some of the U.S. Government's largest development programs. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Mr. Green championed legislation to promote global health.
“We are pleased to see a candidate with a track record of service to global health who has lived and worked in low-resource settings,” said Marian Wentworth, MSH’s President and CEO. “As a longtime implementing partner of USAID, MSH looks forward to working with Ambassador Green, if confirmed, to continue to build on the gains achieved by USAID to promote maternal and child health, fight infectious diseases such as AIDS, TB and malaria, and strengthen health systems.”
Before leading the International Republican Institute, Mr. Green served as President and CEO of the Initiative for Global Development, a nonprofit organization that engages corporate leaders to reduce poverty through business growth and investment in Africa. Prior to that, he served as senior director at the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, a network of 400 businesses, nongovernmental organizations, policy experts, and other leaders supporting development tools in American foreign policy.
Mr. Green served four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Wisconsin’s 8th District. While in Congress, he helped craft key policy initiatives related to global health including the Millennium Challenge Act and President George W. Bush’s history-making AIDS program, PEPFAR. Mr. Green is the founding Managing Director of Malaria No More’s Washington, DC office.
