Statement on the Passing of Hugo Hoogenboom
Hugo Hoogenboom, a longtime leader of EngenderHealth (then operating under a different name) from 1981 to 1995, recently passed away. Hoogenboom had a significant influence on the shape of EngenderHealth for decades after his tenure. Under his leadership, the organization significantly grew its international portfolio, shifting away from a programmatic focus on the United States to a global approach to reproductive health, which remains true today.
Many who worked with Hoogenboom have reached out to share warm memories of him as a kind, thoughtful person and a supportive leader. Today we honor his legacy by continuing to work for a world in which everyone has access to the information and services they need to make their own reproductive health choices.
