My name is Scott McQuade and I advocate for greater public knowledge and political commitment to remedy life's ills.
I communicate about HIV and AIDS evidence and policy at UNAIDS, the Joint UN Programme on HIV and AIDS. My primary focus therefore ranges from sexual and reproductive health, gender and human rights, to science, policies and behaviour relevant to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support.
As a career communicator, trained marketer and former company director, I have led successful public information and lobbying campaigns, coached teams and senior executives, published award-winning documents, written widely-quoted speeches and stories and launched new public companies. I am inspired by the many people and institutions active in this rapidly evolving media environment, which offers us novel ways to relate and inspire.
