New Pan Africa Health & Development Newsletter - Your opinion please
Dear All,
First and foremost, please accept sincere apologies for the length of 
this mail.
Datelinehealth-Africa is initiating a Pan-Africa E-Health and Devel-
opment Newsletter to serve as a trust-worthy medium for interested 
but otherwise busy people to use for scanning health and development 
issues in Africa.
The coverage of the newsletter is broad and includes health and de-
velopment information, evidence for best practices as well as diverse 
research reports for general consumers, specialists, professionals 
and health industry operators. Despite its broad coverage, the oppor-
tunity to choose format of presentation facilitates focus to suit 
every requirement.
In order to moderate its size, open source links are used to provide 
access to full text resources from the Datelinehealth-Africa and many 
other websites. In addition, links are used to direct access for 
searching a growing database for jobs, fellowships, grants, work-
shops, training and exhibition resources in Africa. Link is also pro-
vided to a comprehensive and growing directory of Afro-Health re-
sources on the Internet.
The newsletter is available in different formats as follows: a) Re-
gional format (e.g., East Africa, West Africa, Southern Africa, etc.) 
b) Country format (e.g. Angola, Burundi, Chad to Zimbabwe) c) Themes 
or subject matter format (e.g., Advocacy, Child Health, Economic is-
sues to Youth and Zoonoses). 
An example of a Country format presentation is offered below. 
All willing subscribers would receive the newsletter on a 30 days 
free trial basis. Subsequently it would be distributed free of cost 
only to valued and supportive members of Datelinehealth-Africa.
To receive a 30-days free trial in any format of your choice, please

Your opinion and wise counsel is most valued. Please feel free to
