理查德·海斯, Professor of Epidemiology & International Health at 澳门银河app官网登录, said: “It was a privilege and pleasure to work with Gita on the MDP301 vaginal microbicide trial on which she was a senior investigator and PI of the trial site in Durban. Gita was well known for the efficiency and quality of the trials that were run at her unit, and for the insights that she brought to the research. I was delighted when we were able to offer her an Honorary Professorship at 澳门银河app官网登录, a position that she has held for many years. She always tried to visit our School when in London, and gave a series of excellent talks centred on the extraordinarily high prevalence and incidence of HIV among young women in KwaZulu Natal, one of the worst affected regions anywhere in the world”. The last of these talks was delivered on 17 March 2020. The session was conducted virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic in the UK and globally. Following her visit to 伦敦 she returned 至 South Africa. It was shortly after this that she became ill with COVID-19.
