Featured in NEJM Journal Watch: Mood Solemn in Melbourne as AIDS 2014 Starts

By the NEJM Journal Watch Editors

There is unquestionably a shadow cast over this year's international AIDS meeting here in Melbourne, writes Paul Sax in his blog HIV and ID Observations. The crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 has prematurely ended the lives of hundreds of people — including many people en route to this conference.

One of the victims was one of the field's finest clinical researchers and leaders, Joep Lange, a former president of the International AIDS Society. The International AIDS Society reports that at least five other delegates were also aboard the flight.
