Getting the Word Out About Africa

December 23, 2006 at 1:52 am (Michael's Posts)

A good NY Times article forwarded to me that I forward on to the community here.  The article discusses the recent efforts to mount a wide, deep campaign against the simple diseases that afflict the poor.  Seems like some of these folks are after our own hearts.  Give a look.  Definitely food for thought.

I was struck by the multilateral efforts and the strong sense of network between the major players.  They also notably call for more interconnectivity.  As a big believer in the ability of a strong, extensive network to get big things done, I took this as reinforcement of my beliefs.  And also as encouragement that what we are doing here to encourage discussion and collegiality is a good thing.

Cheers, Global Health folks, and happy holidays wherever you are.
