It is with profound sadness that we have learnt of the passing of Dr. Robert Remis on Thursday, September 25, 2014. He was a dedicated researcher, teacher, mentor and colleague who played an integral role in understanding the HIV epidemic in Ontario and in Canada. He worked closely with the African and Caribbean Council on HIV/AIDS in Ontario (ACCHO) since its inception and supported the response to HIV in Ontario's African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) communities. He was author to many epidemiological reports and spearheaded the Ontario HIV Epidemiologic Monitoring Unit housed at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. Robert will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with him, his family and friends.
Individuals claiming to work for "ICAD Kenya" have allegedly been attempting to raise funds in Kenya. They have also used Facebook to create an appearance of being affiliated with us. ICAD has no offices anywhere in developing countries, nor do we raise funds from individuals or NGOs in any developing country.
