E-drug: Invitation to e-3x5, an electronic discussion group
[Maybe not fully in E-drug's profile, but I thought some of you
would want to know. Copied from the Afro-nets forum. Thanks.
It is my great pleasure to invite you to join e-3x5, an electronic
discussion group and information network created by the World
Health Organization (WHO) and UNAIDS in collaboration with
The goal of e-3x5 is to provide a forum for dialogue and
exchange of information on the WHO and partner-supported
initiative to get 3 million people living with HIV/AIDS in
resource-limited countries on antiretroviral therapy (ART) by the
end of 2005, as a first step to achieving the goal of universal
access to treatment as a human right.
Implementers of ART programs, governments, NGO's,
advocacy groups, people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS
and interested individuals, will be able to rapidly share
information and experiences, discuss strategies, problems and
successes, and learn through action as we address this critical
public health emergency.
Starting subscription to e-3x5 is very simple.
1) send an e-mail to <firstname.lastname@example.org> without any
subjects and body of the message, or
2) go to http://list.healthnet.org/mailman/listinfo/e-3x5 and
follow the instructions there.
