Andrew came to Unitaid in 2015 after a long career as a journalist with Reuters News Service that included postings in Madrid, Moscow, Mexico, Milan, Hong Kong, Caracas, Zurich, London and Rome. Andrew says that although Unitaid’s goal can be stated simply–harnessing innovation to end epidemics in lower-income countries–the organisation’s day-to-day work is often behind the scenes, complicated and technical. He sees the communications director’s challenge as “explaining what we do in clear language, and finding ways to bring it alive.” One of the pleasures of working at Unitaid, Andrew finds, is the youthful energy, dedication and intelligence of the staff. Before joining Unitaid, Andrew was head of media and translations at The Global Fund. He is originally from the UK, loves the sea and the mountains, and is a voracious reader.
