BAMAKO, Mali, Nov. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- We are deeply saddened to confirm the tragic loss of our friend and colleague Anita Datar, who was killed during the attack on the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bamako, Mali on November 20, 2015.
Ms Datar was in Mali along with two colleagues, both of whom were safely evacuated from the hotel.
Ms Datar had spent more than a decade pursuing global public health, specifically reproductive health and HIV. Most recently, she was the Senior Director for Field Programs for HP+, a USAID-funded health policy project focused on improving reproductive health in developing countries. She will be remembered as a dedicated humanitarian and a trusted and beloved colleague.
On behalf of everyone at Palladium, we extend our condolences to her family and friends. Our thoughts are with her loved ones.
