Canadian ‘giant’ of HIV research drowns

Geneva, Switzerland | AFP | Canadian scientist Mark Wainberg — described as a “giant” of HIV science and who had recently been working on finding a cure for the condition — has died at the age of 71, UNAIDS said on Thursday.

The internationally renowned scientist, who was at the forefront of HIV research from the very beginning of the global AIDS epidemic, drowned on Wednesday while swimming off Bal Harbour in Florida, Radio Canada said.

“UNAIDS is deeply saddened by the tragic death of pioneering HIV researcher Mark Wainberg,” the agency dedicated to battling the disease said in a statement.

Wainberg and his colleagues identified one of the main anti-retroviral medicines used to treat HIV infection and also contributed to the understanding of HIV drug resistance.

“Mark Wainberg was a giant in HIV science,” UNAIDS chief Michel Sidibe said in a statement, stressing that the researcher’s work “contributed to saving millions of lives”.

Linda-Gail Bekker, head of the International AIDS Society (IAS), which Wainberg lead from 1998, said the HIV/AIDS research community had “lost one of our fiercest champions”.

“He was the epitome of dedication from the earliest days of the response,” she said, adding that “the impact of his work… will live on through the millions of people accessing HIV treatment and those of us who were lucky enough to know him”.

Wainberg, who served as an informal advisor to UNAIDS, was heading AIDS research at the Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research at the Jewish General Hospital and also of McGill University’s AIDS Centre in Canada at the time of his death.

During his time leading IAS, he organised the 13th International AIDS conference in Durban, South Africa, and he also co-chaired the same conference in Toronto in 2006.

    is real take it serious,my name is Manuel Jerry and i am so happy that
    today i can give this testimony to the world and also help in saving
    life of people who has been condemned for death just as i was ,who
    will believe that a herb can cure HERPES and HIV VIRUS completely from
    the body , i never believe that this will work, i have spend a lot of
    money getting drugs from the hospital to keep me healthy, it got to a
    time that all i was waiting for is death to come because i was broke
    and i already have strong outbreaks from the herpes virus, one day i
    was going through the net asking questions online just to know more
    about the latest development in the medical sector to see if there is
    still hope then i stumbled on a post about this great man called
    DR.chrispoher UAE DUBAI through an online friend who publicly made a
    testimony on how she was also cured of herpes simplex virus by this
    herbal doctor who is well known for his strong ancient herbal practice
    for HERPES, HIV, and CANCER cure,at first i doubted both the woman and
    the doctor just as so many that see\’s this post would doubt because
    medically it has been proven impossible but later i decided to give
    him a try so i emailed him I did not believe him that much, I just
    wanted to give him a try, he replied my mail and Needed some
    Information about me, then I sent them to him, he prepared a herbal
    medicine (CURE) and sent it through Online Courier Service for
    delivery, he gave my details to the Courier Office. they told me that
    3-5 days I will receive the package and after receiving it, i took the
    medicine as prescribed by him at the end of 13days that the medicine
    lasted, he told me to go to the hospital for a test, and i went,
    surprisingly after the test the doctor confirm me Herpes simplex virus
    and HIV negative, i thought it was a joke, i went to other hospitals
    and was also negative the doctors were speechless and said it was a
    miracle, thank you sir for saving my life even if you cannot see this
    post i shall never stop testifying the impact you made in my life by
    restoring back my life when i was being stigmatized and even avoided

  9. Hello everyone i am Will Ryan Lee from California USA. i have been suffering from HEPATITIS disease since 2013 and also had constant pain around my chest region. During the first year, I took it slightly and had thought with just normal pills and medication that it would be healed someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and the pain kept hurting me and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, but to no avail. few months ago i came to search on the internet if could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my search i saw a testimony of someone who has been cured from (Hepatitis B and Cancer) by this Lady Dr Yvonne and she also gave the email address of this lady and advise we should contact him for any sickness that she would be of help, so i wrote immediately to mail address of Dr Yvonne telling him about my Hepatitis and my chest
    pain. He me not to worry told that i was going to be cured!! Seriously I thought it was a joke because have suffered this for almost 2 years now. So I never just believed in the doctor though I had to
    also give a try. well after the brief procedures and remedy given to me by this Doctor, few weeks later started experiencing changes all over my body as Dr Yvonne assured me. i quickly contacted the doctor
    to inform him about the progress of the treatment he also sent me some more medicine which I took in addition. The progress continued and I was gradually restored to a good and sound health. after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have been finally cured behold it was TRUE, So
    friends my advice is, if you have such sickness or any other at all like hepatitis B,CANCER, HPV, HPB,ALS,Psoriasis ,Perkinsons Diseases etc…
    you can email Dr Yvonne
    on : (medlabtec(at)mail.com). or her address in Porth Charlotte Florida United State
    Dr Yvonne I am very grateful to you as i am now as I am restored back to asound health, I will always share this testimony everywhere.
    THANKS
    SOMUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
