Vale Dr Harry Nespolon

Medicines Australia is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Dr Harry Nespolon.

Dr Nespolon leaves a tremendous legacy of passion and integrity.

Dr Nespolon has made an immense contribution to Medicines Australia and to the industry. He has been a valuable member of the Medicines Australia Code of Conduct Committee for over 15 years. Dr Nespolon’s unfailing determination to uphold ethical behaviour, along with his ability to make rational decisions, quickly made him an integral part of the Committee. Never afraid to make a statement, or ask a challenging question, Dr Nespolon’s contribution to this committee will be sorely missed.

Dr Nespolon showed great leadership of the RACGP during the COVID-19 Crisis. His tireless work advocating for continuity of care, and strong criticism of misinformation being spread demonstrated his passion for his profession.

Medicines Australia, and the industry is richer for having the good fortune of Dr Nespolon’s friendship and advice. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

Vale Dr Harry Nespolon.
