An opportunity that might appeal to appropriately qualified readers from the United States, to help ensure that circumcision is not further imposed on populations in the U.S. under the pretext of HIV/STD-prevention, and to address at the regulatory level the special danger possed to newly circumcised boys from acquiring transfusion-transmitted viral hepatitis infection.

 

From a blog.AIDS.gov entry dated 10 February 2014:


 

Quote:

The 18-member Advisory Committee provides advice to the HHS Secretary, CDC’s Director, and HRSA’s Administrator on objectives, strategies, policies, and priorities for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, and STD prevention and treatment efforts. Nominees should be experts in HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis and STD prevention, control and treatment. Experts in the disciplines of epidemiology, laboratory practice, immunology, infectious diseases, drug abuse, behavioral science, health education, healthcare delivery, state health programs, clinical care, preventive health, medical education, health services and clinical research, healthcare financing, and other related disciplines will be considered. At least four of the committee members must be living with HIV/AIDS. Selected members may be invited to serve for terms of up to four years.

...

For more information on CHAC and its members as well as the nomination process, read this Federal Register announcement and visit the committee’s webpage.
