We, the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), the European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology (EULAR), and the International League of Associations for Rheumatology (ILAR) are deeply saddened by the passing of Debashish Danda, MBBS, MD, DM, FRCP. Professor Danda was a highly respected member of the global rheumatology community. His contributions to the field were immense and his passion for improving patient care was unparalleled. As an educator, Professor Danda nurtured a new generation of rheumatology providers across the Asia Pacific region. He was a beacon of knowledge, compassion, and dedication, and his loss will be felt deeply within our community. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Professor Danda’s family, friends, and colleagues. His legacy will continue to inspire us and guide our efforts in advancing the field of rheumatology.
