In Memoriam: Harrie van Rooij

20 June 2011

It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Harrie van Rooij. Dr van Rooij became a member of Stichting HIV Monitoring’s Governing Board in 2008 in affiliation with the Hiv Vereniging Nederland. As a member of the board, he made a valuable contribution to the work and direction of SHM. He also made significant contributions to helping people living with HIV in the Netherlands through the many organisations he was involved in.

Although Dr van Rooij suffered from various health problems the last couple of years, he died suddenly and unexpectedly on 12 June 2011. He will be sadly missed and we offer our condolences to his partner, relatives and friends.
