Statement on Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17


18 Jul 2014

WaterAid is deeply saddened to hear of the crash of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 in Ukraine.

Many of the passengers who so tragically lost their lives were colleagues from the global health community who were travelling to the International AIDS Conference in Melbourne. This is a great loss to world health research, and to the HIV/AIDS community in particular.

We wish to express our sincere condolences to the families and friends of all those who were aboard Malaysian Airlines flight MH17.
