Martin Delaney, who started the pioneering HIV patient advocacy and treatment organization Project Inform, died Friday of liver cancer at his home in San Rafael. He was 63.

"Marty Delaney was highly influential in opening a pipeline of drugs that have played a major role in saving countless lives," said Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

This month the institute presented Mr. Delaney with the Director's Special Recognition Award, its highest honor. He received the letter informing him of the award a few days before he died.

"Without his tireless work and vision, many more people would have perished from HIV/AIDS," Fauci said in a statement that accompanied the award. "It is without hyperbole that I call Marty Delaney a public health hero."
