If a particular message is addressed to only one or two members of the
AFRO-NETS, please make sure to send it to ONLY them. Otherwise it be-
comes quite confusing.
For example, How am I supposed to know what are these acronyms: PPASA,
MAWHN ? Where are Woman's (sic) Health Network and Reproductive Health
Research Unit ?? Who is collaborating with whom ??? How does this an-
swer Susan Foster's original question ???? (for which she is better off
getting a consultant since both Boston and LSHTM have loads of money).
I wrote to S.K. Nayak:
generally you are right and we are forwarding individually addressed
messages to the respective persons. In this case there was message No 3
from Afua Hesse dealing with MAWHN and obviously Dr. Rees mixed it up
as if coming from Glaudina Loots.
Unfortunately many authors do not give us their physical address, af-
filiation or even their name.
I sent the messages out via AFRO-NETS since there is a good chance that
people with same or similar goals can contact each other to collaborate
in their fields of interest in future.
Be assured that already 10-20% of messages are not sent out at all be-
cause they do not fit the objectives of AFRO-NETS, are administrative
requests or even spam.
S. K. Nayak replied:
I shall be grateful if you please let my message posted in the AFRO-
NETS; so that all our members would know the inconvenience being caused
by their non-declaration of name/address, etc. In future, they will be
careful in not sending their messages to ALL but only to one or two
members whom they want to contact.
