MSF expresses its condolences to the families, friends, and colleagues of those on board the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) expresses our condolences to the families, friends, and colleagues of those on board the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 that crashed in Ukraine yesterday. MSF is deeply saddened and shocked at the loss of many people from the HIV community - leading scientists, researchers, activists and allies among them - who were heading for the 2014 International AIDS Conference in Melbourne. The HIV community will feel their loss profoundly; we can only honour them by re-doubling our commitment and efforts to address the HIV pandemic.
