Dr. Alfred Gerald, Medical Officer 1965-1979
"Venezuela was one of the countries where I had responsibility, but so was Grenada, Jamaica, the French territories, and other countries. I think what impressed me most is our ability to bring all these people together. I remember bringing them to Caracas, and we would discuss the common problems of the area. They would leave helping each other. I was glad that PAHO would be the means of bringing people together to discuss their health, their problems in health, and how they can be overcome."

"The centennial is a very important historical moment, a significant birthday of this Organization, which has served the Americas well for 100 years. The people that work for PAHO are a perfectly tremendous and magnificent resource. We always had a terrific group of people working here. What is going to make PAHO move in the future has got to be the people, the staff that works here, the leadership that the Organization has."
