Statement from President Clinton on the Passing of Dr. Tachi Yamada

I’m deeply saddened by the sudden passing of the Clinton Health Access Initiative’s Board Chair, Dr. Tachi Yamada.  Tachi was an extraordinary scientist and leader who used his brilliant mind and kind, good heart to improve the lives of millions of people around the world. 

Tachi brought a world of experience, knowledge, and good judgment to CHAI. He inspired us all to help more people and save more lives.  We will carry his spirit forward as we work to fulfill his life’s mission, always grateful for the times we shared.

My thoughts are with Leslie, his family, and all who loved him.
