News from AIDS Action Europe
Thank you to Sveta Moroz and Ferenc Bagyinszky
AIDS Action Europe wants to say Goodbye to our Steering Committee Members Svitlana Moroz and Ferenc Bagyinszky. We like to thank you for all your valuable contributions to our network.
Svitlana joined the AAE Steering Committee in 2012 and was the representative of Ukraine and in a broader sense, of Eastern Europe and she voiced many times the concerns and the needs of this region during our meetings. Her contributions to strategic discussions and to the process of transferring the AAE secretariat from Soa AIDS Netherlands to Deutsche AIDS-Hilfe are highly appreciated.
Ferenc was our Steering Committee member since 2009. As a representative of HIV low prevalence countries he ensured that challenges regarding treatment and costs for treatment were put high on the AAE Steering Committee agenda. He contributed to a lot of AAE discussions with his vast experience in advocacy and strategic thinking on how to achieve good results with policy makers.
AAE is saying good-bye to you as SC Members with many thanks and big hugs. We also would like to thank you for all the time and energy that you have dedicated to the network! AAE is looking forward to collaborate with you and your organisations on new ideas to end AIDS and to leave no-one behind.
