Professor Zef Ebrahim

4 April 2012

We have been deeply saddened to learn that Zef has died.  For all who knew him Zef was admired for his tremendous contribution to international child health.  He made a huge contribution to education and research, with several of his books becoming classics and being widely distributed and read in the developing world through his connection with Teaching Aids at Low Cost.

Through his role as founder and editor of the Journal of Tropical Paediatrics he gave a voice to research that affected the lives of millions of people. 

He was very popular with his students and many kept in touch with him after he retired.  If you would like to send your condolences to his family, please email sunnyandzef@btinternet.com
