It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform the passing away of Dr Eudes de Freitas Aquino.
Dr Eudes was the international representative of the Brazilian health cooperatives for many years. A committed cooperator, he served as a Board Member and President of the IHCO. His support and contribution was a cornerstone to health cooperativism development.
A renowned nephrologist, Dr Eudes was President of the health cooperative Unimed Piracicaba. Later, he was a Board Member of Unimed Federation of Sao Paulo, President of Unimed do Brazil and Board Member of the International Cooperative Alliance.
A man of humility, he was always kind, generous and very supportive. He will long be remembered with respect and gratitude. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, co-workers and everyone whose life was touched by Dr Eudes.
