It is with profound sorrow and heavy hearts that we bid farewell to Aryanti.

Throughout the years, Aryanti’s presence among us was deeply felt, but it was through her dedicated work that we truly came to understand and cherish her remarkable contributions. We are lucky for having had opportunities to work with during her illustrious career marked with many a professional achievement.

Her pivotal role as a facilitator in SHIRIM – initially launched in Amsterdam and later extended to Indonesia, Bangladesh, Jordan, and Burundi – left an indelible imprint on our collective efforts. This collaborative endeavour culminated in the publication of “Using a Rapid Knowledge Translation Approach for Better Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Bangladesh, Burundi, Indonesia, and Jordan”, a standing testament of Aryanti’s impact on Share-Net.

Aryanti was an integral part of the Infertility Community of Practice from its inception in 2017. As a member of this team, she played a vital role in fostering discussions around infertility during the inaugural Co-Creation Conference in 2019. Over time, the Infertility CoP blossomed into a tight-knit community, bonding over chocolate and tea at the University of Amsterdam, driven by a shared commitment to keeping infertility at the forefront of the sexual and reproductive health and rights agenda.

In 2017-2018, Aryanti alongside colleagues in the Infertility CoP embarked on the Jembatan project—a groundbreaking initiative aimed at bolstering the integration of (in)fertility issues into SRHR programming in Indonesia. Her tireless dedication and fervent advocacy for this cause will forever be etched in our memories as a significant contribution to advancing our collective mission.

Aryanti’s legacy endures through her enduring bonds within Share-Net, the profound impact she made in the field of global health, and the unforgettable imprint she has left on all of us. May she rest in peace, and may her spirit continue to guide and inspire us all.

After a brief illness, Aryanti passed away on 10th February 2024 in Leiderdorp, Netherlands.
She is survived by her children Alexander and Jessica Haak. At the time of her passing, Aryanti was the Director of ResultsinHealth. We offer our condolences to her family, friends, loved ones, and all whose lives she touched.
