Dr. Mathilde Krim, a pioneer in the battle against HIV/AIDS, passed away Jan. 15 at age 91, according to NewNowNext.com .

The cause of death is currently unknown.

In 1983, Krim founded the AIDS Medical Foundation ( AMF ), the first private organization dedicated to AIDS research. In 1985, AMF merged with a like-minded California-based group to form the American Foundation for AIDS Research ( amfAR ), which is involved in mobilizing funds for clinical trials, AIDS prevention and public policy.

Krim was amfAR's founding chair and was, from 1990—2004, the chairman of the board, according to amfAR's website. In August 2000, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the highest civilian honor in the United States.
