AIDS researcher amongst those on MH17
AFA expresses it’s deepest condolences and sincere sympathies to the families and loved ones of all on board flight MH17. 100 AIDS Conference delegates heading to Melbourne lost their lives in this unfortunate tragedy. It is indescribably painful and regrettable for all of us. As we grief with the community, our thoughts and prayers are with their families and loved ones.
Among them were professor Joep Lange from the Netherlands, Lucie van Mens, and Martin de Schutter from AIDS Action Europe and Glenn Thomas from the World Health Organisation.
Lange, an expert in the field of medicinal AIDS therapy, founder of PharmAccess Foundation and Former International AIDS Society head has strongly advocated for patients in Africa to gain improved access to effective drugs.
“If we are able to deliver cold Coca Cola and beer to the most remotes regions in Africa, it shouldn’t be impossible to do the same with drugs.”
