Wits RHI Executive Directors pay tribute to friends on board Malaysian Airlines flight
July 18 2014
We are profoundly sad to tell you that two dear friends of Wits RHI, Joep Lange and Jacqueline van Tongeren, were on board the Malaysian Airlines flight that was shot down yesterday.
Many of us have known and worked closely with Joep and Jacqueline for many years. Together with Joep, Wits RHI organised the INTEREST workshop on HIV treatment, pathogenesis and treatment research in the African region for the past eight years, and at Joep’s invitation we were one of the founding international organisations of the Amsterdam Institute for Global Health.
Joep was a critically important leader in the field of ARV development and in the global HIV world, and more than this he was a human rights activist and a visionary in his efforts to get HIV drugs out to the world. For many of us, we have also lost two friends in Joep and Jacqueline. Joep was one of a kind – an outspoken, proud Dutch man who wasn’t afraid to state his views to anyone, and who didn’t tolerate apathy or incompetence. And always at his side was Jacqueline who was his smiling, kind and efficient counterpart.
Wits RHI and the AIDS world have lost Joep’s unique contribution to the global effort around HIV, and for those of us who knew them well, we have lost two dear friends.
Professor Helen Rees, Professor Francois Venter and Dr Eugene Sickle
