As International AIDS Vaccine Initiative delegates to the AIDS 2014 conference in Melbourne take part in commemorations and tributes to those HIV/AIDS experts who lost their lives on Flight MH17, the entire IAVI global community extends our deepest condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of these six remarkable people:

We are proud to have worked alongside these six people and their losses will be deeply felt. But as we mourn, we resolve to pay tribute to their memories by reinforcing our commitment and resolve to achieving a world without HIV/AIDS.
