Washington: The US administration on Tuesday named Rajiv J. Shah, 36, a medical doctor and health economist now at the country’s agriculture department, to run its main foreign aid arm, the US Agency for International Development.
Shah’s appointment, if confirmed by the US Senate, would bring an end to 10 months of leadership drift at the agency that has deeply frustrated Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
