Welcome to the first edition of the GloPID-R Newsletter.
Our environment is constantly changing and our network and its members are active on many fronts to prepare for and respond to outbreaks. This regular newsletter will provide you with current information on the activities of the GloPID-R members and the Working Groups (such as Data Sharing, Response Plan and Zika); it will highlight outbreak news and key relevant funding calls. It will also introduce you to new members and will inform you of any new resources available in the collaborative workspace.
I am very grateful to our Vice Chair, Marc Ouellette, with the help of Serge Desnoyers, for accepting to be an editorial advisor to the newsletter. I would also like to thank the many members who enriched this first edition with their updates.
To ensure that we keep up to date with all our members’ activities, we would welcome your input! Please send the GloPID-R Secretariat your news, updates and comments to share in upcoming newsletters: firstname.lastname@example.org
