Delegates to AIDS summit on doomed flight.

Article: Delegates to Melbourne AIDS summit on doomed flight MH17

Downed flight had over 100 AIDS/HIV researchers and activists, including Americans and Australians.
Bill Clinton, Bob Geldof, Michel Sidibe, the executive director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Mark Dybul, Indonesian Health Minister Nafsiam Mboi and Swedish Ambassador for Global Health Anders Nordstrom are down as speakers at the conference.

US Ambassador John Berry, who is in Melbourne for the conference, said he was struggling to comprehend the news.
“Here in Australia, we are particularly struck by the loss of 27 Australians and others who were coming here to Melbourne to attend the International AIDS conference — activists, medical researchers, and global health policy experts working to make the world a better place by ridding it of HIV and AIDS.”
