We are dedicated to providing life-saving HIV treatment, care, nutritious food, support services and love to children and families affected by HIV in Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and India.
KCA is thrilled to announce that Peter Twyman has joined the KCA team as our new Chief Executive Officer. Peter is an accomplished executive with over twenty years of leadership experience in designing, implementing and directing public health programs in the U.S. and internationally, with a focus on HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment.
“Peter’s tremendous experience combined with his expansive knowledge base and passion for public health and the fight against HIV/AIDS will be invaluable in helping Keep a Child Alive grow and reach its goals,” said Dave Wirtschafter, Board Chair of KCA. “With his guidance, I’m confident we can help provide even more lifesaving treatments to the children and families in Africa and India affected by this devastating illness.”
Prior to joining KCA, Peter served as the Regional Program Director at the International Center for AIDS Care and Treatment Programs (ICAP) at Columbia University where he directed large scale HIV prevention, care and treatment programs in Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Swaziland. He joined Columbia after four years at Engender Health where he developed HIV programs in Africa and Asia, and several years managing HIV programs for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and City of San Francisco. He also directed a community based program benefiting underserved residents of San Francisco. Peter holds a Master of Public Health from Harvard University.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Keep a Child Alive team,” says Peter. “KCA has been a trailblazer in advocating for and supporting life saving treatment and care programs for children and families affected by HIV. While the international community has made tremendous progress in expanding access to AIDS treatment to children and their families in resource limited countries, we are still facing an uphill battle. I am confident KCA will continue to play an important role in supporting innovative and much needed programs.”
Welcome to Keep a Child Alive, Peter!
