"He is a member of the Presidential Advisory Council on H.I.V./AIDS "

he may have "been" a member; but he "IS" not a member now. There are no members now. all remaining members of the Council were dismissed by POTUS #45 on 28 December 2017, following the resignation of six members in June 2017 in protest at Trump's health policies

There's no rain, there's no storm, though the blue sky makes you wonder
Don't you fear what will come will come
And right now we're in the sun
Sure enough, seasons change
But don't let today get lost 'cause today the sun's on us
Today the sun's on us

He has now been officially appointed.

Beware: or at least be aware
He is on the board of directors of :
Children’s AIDS Fund (CAF)

https://childrensaidsfund.org/accountability/

And its founders[CAF founders Shepherd and Anita Smith] have been vehement foes of what they see as the corrupting influence of LGBT organizations in the field of AIDS relief. In a 2001 speech to the conservative Christian group Concerned Women for America (CWA), Anita said, “What we have here is a power struggle between homosexual white men who abuse all the government AIDS programs fundamentally to fund their subculture and their political activities.” And the Smiths continue to align themselves with right-wing “pro-family” organizations. In 2011, for example, the Smiths were featured speakers at the Moscow Demographic Summit, sponsored by the anti-gay World Congress of Families.

These people support abstinence only sex ed and don't support condoms.

In 1991 Redfield was linked to a controversial effort in Congress to make healthcare employees test for HIV. (If thankfully failed.)

“What one wants in a director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is a scientist of impeccable scientific integrity,” the president of Center for Science in the Public Interest, Dr. Peter Lurie, said in a statement Wednesday. “What one would get in Robert Redfield is a sloppy scientist with a long history of scientific misconduct and an extreme religious agenda.”

So Trump picks the one HIV researcher who:
Has ties to Evangelical Christians.
Ties to organizations that meet in Moscow.
Ties to anti-homosexual groups.
Was involved in IDing HIV positive servicemen in the 1980s and getting them discharged (without medical benefits).
Tried to get healthcare professionals tested for HIV.
Promoted a vaccine in the early 1990 over antivirals.
Redfield was indicted of misrepresenting information about a efficacy of an initial AIDS vaccine that he was supporting.(Later dismissed w/o charges or an explanation.
Board member on the Smiths NGO organization that appears to see PrEP as just another excuse for people to act immorally.

To bad his appointment is not subject to Senate confirmation, I got a lot of questions.
