Our sincere condolences for the passing of Dr. Lucie Blok

The world of public health has lost a great colleague with a passion for teaching and quality public health response, driven by science and data. Dr. Lucie Blok did not only fight to eliminate tuberculosis (TB), but also for a better world.

The impact she made on the lives of her family, friends, colleagues and countless of TB patients will not be forgotten. Our condolences go out to whomever had the privilege of knowing her. Rest in Peace, dear Dr. Blok.

KNCV has been fighting TB since its establishment in 1903. Over the past 120 years, the organization has acquired indispensable knowledge and experience in the field of effective TB prevention and care, resulting in pre-elimination in the Netherlands and significant contributions to global evidence generation, policy development and TB program implementation worldwide.
