Daily Record (United Kingdom) (09.14.01) - Wednesday,
The widow of AIDS patient Dr. Sandy Logie will continue his
anti-poverty and AIDS work in Africa. Dr. Logie, 62, died
seven months ago after being infected with HIV when a needle
used on a dying patient jabbed his finger.
His widow, Dr. Dorothy Logie, said recently that she intends
to help carry out her husband's work in Zambia. "AIDS is a
symptom of what is happening in Africa and the epidemic is
being largely driven by poverty. It was poverty-related issues
that Sandy and I were interested in looking at in the
beginning. It was only after he became infected that we
focused our attention on AIDS," she said.
Dr. Logie and friends have raised almost 10,000 pounds
($15,000) for a memorial fund for her husband, which has gone
to the St. Francis Hospital in Zambia.
