Andrew Warlick passed away tragically on Sunday 11 April 2010. His loss comes as a shock to many, and in particular the many within TAC whose lives he has touched.
Andrew was a TAC employee and member for five years. During the years of AIDS denialism, Andrew worked in TAC’s policy, communication and research department to promote an effective, evidence-based policy framework for HIV treatment, prevention and care in South Africa.
Andrew used to work closely with some TAC district offices. He particularly loved doing grassroots work in Lusikisiki, where his efforts were much appreciated and he made good friends.
Over the past year, Andrew approached the task of monitoring and evaluation Manager with enthusiasm and creativity, pulling together our M&E system and laying the basis for exciting future development. With every breakthrough, he couldn't contain his excitement - and his enthusiasm was infectious. He was not just a number cruncher, but wanted to see the success of the initiatives that he monitored.
Andrew will be greatly missed by his friends, family and colleagues.
Hamba kahle, comrade and friend.
