Eric Goosby, MD
Provider, MOCP; Chief Executive Officer, Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation


Dr. Eric Goosby is a clinical provider through the 360-UCSF Men of Color program.  He brings more than two decades of HIV experience to the care of his patients.  A native son of San Francisco, his work and career has spanned the globe.  Besides his work at 360-UCSF, Eric is CEO and Chief Medical Officer of Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation. As CEO, Dr. Goosby plays an important role in the development and/or implementation of HIV/AIDS national treatment scale-up around the world.  His past work has taken him to Rwanda, South Africa, China, and the Ukraine. 

Dr. Goosby began treating patients since the early days of the pandemic.  He was at San Francisco General Hospital when AIDS first began to take its devastating toll on the City.  In 1986, he became AIDS activity division attending physician, and the following year was appointed associate medical director of SF General’s AIDS Clinic. In 1991, Dr. Goosby moved to a position in the federal government as director of HIV Services at the U.S. Public Health Service/Health Resources and Services Administration.

In 1994, Dr. Goosby became director of the Office of HIV/AIDS Policy in the Department of Health and Human Services. In this position, he was a strong advocate for responsible government policy in the areas of HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and research, advised on the federal HIV/AIDS budget, and worked with Congress on all AIDS-related issues.

In 2000, while working as the director of HIV/AIDS policy at the Department of Health and Human Services, he served as acting deputy director of the National AIDS Policy Office in the White House.  In these roles, Dr. Goosby had continuing involvement in the Ryan White CARE Act and its reauthorization, and participated in the definition and creation of a coordinated response to HIV/AIDS in the global setting, which became the LIFE initiative during the Clinton Administration.

Eric shares: “The HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States has entrenched itself in people of color, especially women of color. We also see increasing numbers of newly infected coming from populations that are more and more disenfranchised and burdened with multiple disease processes that require specialized care.  Medical systems of care must adapt their time and place of operation and their outreach efforts to create a medical system that embraces these populations and retains them in care for the duration of their lives. 360 -UCSF is a  program that is attempting to develop innovative responses to this unmet need.”
