Glenda Gray, CEO and president of the South African Medical Research Council, tells LSIPR of the life-saving work she is undertaking and her ambitious goals to improve the South African healthcare landscape.
During her time as a paediatrician at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, Glenda Gray was faced with an influx of HIV in young babies, infants and children. All the while, HIV was becoming more prominent in pregnant women. Gray recognised
an issue that needed addressing and, alongside James McIntyre, founded the Perinatal HIV Research Unit (PHRU).
Gray is also president of the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC). Her field and administration experience provided her with the knowledge to lead the best possible research response strategies in South Africa.
Gray’s experience as a medical doctor and paediatrician, and her involvement in clinical research, have provided her with a solid foundation to make a significant impact in improving the understanding of HIV in her country.
