Thanks Julie for sharing the information about the passing of Dr. Noel Juban, indeed a great loss for the global health community.
I, as a member of the Social Innovation for Health Initiative (SIHI) Latinamerica and the Caribbean (LAC) Hub (https://socialinnovationinhealth.org/americas/), had the opportunity to work close to him and his team, SIHI Philippines and SIHI Global Secretariat.
He will be remembered for his kindness, joy and the passion with which he developed his work in the different areas of public health, academia and especially social innovation in health, reaching communities in need and working with and learning from them.
Rest in peace Dr. Noel Juban.
