It is with great sadness that Hepatitis NSW mourns the passing of Professor David Cooper AO on Sunday 18 March. David died in St Vincent’s Hospital after a short illness. His family was with him. As Director of the Kirby Institute at UNSW, Professor Cooper’s contributions to communities affected by HIV and other infectious diseases in Australia and around the world were extraordinary.
Our thoughts are with David’s family, work colleagues and friends at this exceptionally difficult time.
