DR. Henrick Ellis is the new Chairman of the National HIV/AIDS Commission.
...
Dr. Ellis, who was officially appointed yesterday, has been involved with HIV in Barbados for over decades and is a founding member of the National Advisory Committee on AIDS, the entity that preceded the Commission. He is credited with forming the National AIDS Hotline and the AIDS Society of Barbados, a non-governmental organisation in 1990.
Dr. Ellis has represented Barbados at several International HIV Conferences in Sweden, Canada, Italy and Germany among others. He has avidly contributed to research in HIV and continues to be an advocate for HIV awareness, especially in the faith-based population with the formation of the Christian response to HIV.
He coordinates the HIV programme for the Anglican Diocese of Barbados and has since 2003, trained numerous groups comprising clergy of all denominations as well as laypersons about HIV. In 2004, Dr. Ellis was recognised for his contribution to the medical field, particularly HIV, and was awarded the Silver Crown of Merit in the National Independence Honours.
