The Global Fund joins the malaria community in mourning the loss of Dr. Albert Peter Okui, a public health specialist, a wonderful colleague and a dear friend. Dr. Okui died in Entebbe, Uganda, on 12 November.
Dr. Okui was the Acting Programme Manager of the National Malaria Control Program in the Minister of Health of Uganda since 2012, and had extensive experience in health planning and implementation, having worked in rural and regional hospitals and in district health services.
Dr Okui was a kind and passionate man who was very much dedicated to the fight against malaria and most recently to the control of epidemics in northern Uganda. He will be remembered for his invaluable support and poise throughout his duty in saving people's lives. He shall be missed.
