great sorrow and unbelief we heard the terrible news that many appreciated
colleagues who were active in the fight against HIV, were on flight MH17 that
crashed in Ukraine.
We think about our beloved and inspiring colleague professor Joep Lange and his partner Jacqueline van Tongeren.
Joep has been of incredible value for the field and has made huge efforts to make antiretroviral therapy accessible throughout all areas of the world. He touched our lives with his energy, vision and knowledge.
are devastated about the loss of our colleagues and so many
other innocent people.
Our thoughts and prayers are with their family, friends and team members.
