The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF), which has operations based in the United Kingdom and the United States, is integrating its various efforts under one central team, according to an EJAF press release. Anne Aslett will lead the global operation as CEO beginning December 1.

As part of the integration, current U.S. executive director Scott Campbell has chosen to step down November 30 after 14 years of service to the foundation.

The restructuring aims to streamline and maximize EJAF’s abilities to help its partners and grantees across the globe. The strategy was reached after an 18-month review; the foundation’s board of directors approved the changes.

“At EJAF, we believe it is possible to end AIDS by 2030. I am confident that our streamlined, integrated approach will enable us to chart a strong path forward and to play a key role in helping make that dream a reality,” said Sir Elton John, founder of the foundation, in the press release.

“For 25 years, the Elton John AIDS Foundation has taken bold action to improve access to lifesaving treatment and prevention medicines for millions of people around the world,” added Aslett. “I am incredibly honored by the opportunity to lead this organization, particularly at a time when we have an urgent global goal to end AIDS and the tools with which to do it.”

In related changes at EJAF, John and Billie Jean King stepped down from the board of directors; John will keep his role as founder and King was named lifetime president.
