Purnima Mane, President & CEO of Pathfinder, released the following statement from Melbourne in advance of the 20th International AIDS Conference:

The downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 is a senseless tragedy. We have lost a number of colleagues and friends who have devoted their lives to fighting HIV and AIDS. Their absence will be felt and mourned beyond the conference -- this is a devastating loss to the global community and the march to ending the epidemic. Our hearts are with the families, friends, and loved ones of the victims.
