Celebrating the life of Dr Noel Juban: Social Innovation in Health Initiative (SIHI)

28 January, 2022

Dear HIFA colleagues,

I was very sad to learn the other day about the passing of Dr Noel Juban. I had the pleasure of working with him and his team on a project and his passing is a great loss to the global health community.

Below I share a message from TDR Director Dr. John Reeder's about Dr Noel Juban:


(This was quoted by Dr. Tedros in his tweet: https://twitter.com/DrTedros/status/1486722675317743645?s=20 )
