Shah to be named head of USAID
The Post's Al Kamen and Mary Beth Sheridan report:
Shah, 36, is a medical doctor who worked for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and before that was a health care policy adviser on Al Gore's presidential campaign. He was confirmed by the Senate in May for his current position, which oversees food safety issues, energy and climate, agricultural productivity and global food security.
His selection ends a long search to find someone to head the beleaguered agency, which dispenses billions of dollars in aid each year to developing countries.
