It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Dr Julius Schachter from complications of COVID-19, on 20 December 2020.
Dr Schachter was a well-recognized leader on combatting trachoma, a chlamydia-related disease. He provided important technical support to our teams, working to defeat antimicrobial resistance in sexually transmitted diseases. We are very grateful to him for the generous support received for our projects, up until his last moments.
Our condolences go to his family and many friends and colleagues around the world.
