Appreciation of Prof. Meo

SSMJ is saddened to hear of the recent death of Professor Giuseppe Meo of the Italian NGO Comitato Collaborazione Medica (CCM). Professor Meo was a surgeon who visited and worked over many years in remote rural areas of South Sudan starting in Wau in 1983 up until last year. SSMJ recently published a paper by Professor Meo and his colleagues and we plan to publish his last one in a forthcoming issue. Professor Meo will be greatly missed by the many health professionals to whom he was a kind mentor and teacher, and by his patients.
