Victoria Hale of Institute for OneWorld Health Named Fellow by International Women's Forum

The Institute for OneWorld Health, the first nonprofit pharmaceutical company in the United States, today announced that CEO Victoria Hale, Ph.D., has been named a Leadership Foundation Fellow for 2003-2004. Hale is one of 14 women selected from a field of more than 50 finalists from all over the world. She is founder and CEO of OneWorld Health, whose experienced team of pharmaceutical scientists uncovers promising drug candidates and advances them through clinical trials and regulatory approval to treat the poorest people in the developing world.

This honor is the third international award in three weeks that recognizes Hale's leadership and vision in establishing OneWorld Health. On Sept. 3 she was named one of five global laureates in health by the Tech Museum of Innovation (San Jose, Calif.). One week prior to that, she was selected as one of 10 outstanding global entrepreneurs by the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship in Geneva, Switzerland (http://www.oneworldhealth.org/news/news.html).

The Leadership Foundation is the educational and charitable arm of the International Women's Forum, a global association of about 3,800 top women leaders from 20 countries. The Leadership Foundation Fellows Program is the only leadership training of its kind in the world, designed for women of cultural, professional and geographic diversity. Aimed at high potential women who have the ability to excel at the highest levels of their organizations, the Fellows Program sustains, grooms and promotes up-and-coming women leaders.

Hale's pharmaceutical career spans 15 years, including regulatory and industry experience at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and biotech pioneer Genentech, Inc.
