Biography of Director Scott Evertz

Photo of ONAP Director, Scott Evertz In April 2001, President Bush appointed Scott Evertz to serve as the Director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy. Mr. Evertz, who also is a member of the White House Domestic Policy Council, leads an expanded AIDS office that is responsible for both domestic and international HIV/AIDS issues. The Office of National AIDS Policy also serves as the Executive Secretariat for the President's Cabinet Task Force on HIV/AIDS, which is co-chaired by Secretary of State Colin Powell and Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson.

Prior to his appointment, Mr. Evertz was a public policy advocate in the State of Wisconsin for people living with and impacted by HIV/AIDS. He worked closely with then Governor Thompson, to create one of the best service delivery systems in the nation for people living with HIV/AIDS. In his professional career, he has worked for a number of health care and AIDS service organizations that provide comprehensive prevention, care, and treatment programs to those at risk for and living with HIV/AIDS.

Mr. Evertz served for several years as legislative director of the Log Cabin Republicans of Wisconsin before being elected State President in 1998. In that capacity, he worked closely with Platform Chairman Governor Tommy Thompson on a successful effort to insert language on national AIDS policy into the 2000 Republican Party platform.

Since his appointment, Mr. Evertz has conducted a nationwide listening tour in those communities hardest hit by HIV/AIDS in the United States. He has also participated in international visits to Africa, Mexico and the Caribbean to witness first hand the impact HIV/AIDS has had in these areas. His office worked to coordinate the United States government's participation in the creation of the Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. In addition, he has led several United States delegations to United Nations meetings dealing with HIV/AIDS.

Mr. Evertz was born and raised in Washington, D.C. and moved to Wisconsin in 1980 to attend Marquette University in Milwaukee. Mr. Evertz received his B.A. in Theology and Political Science from Marquette in 1984 and remains a resident of Madison, Wisconsin.
