Stop TB Partnership

In memory of Dr. Mwape Lyndon Kafwabulula

27 July 2005 -- It is with very great sadness and shock that we announce the death of Dr. Mwape Lyndon Kafwabulula, the TB and leprosy specialist (equivalent to NTP manager) at the Central Board of Health, in Zambia.

Lyndon died this week in South Africa as a result of the serious injuries he sustained in a car accident in Zambia two weeks ago. His wife and young family survived the crash unharmed.

His death is a great loss for TB control in Zambia and our deepest condolences go to his wife and family.
