New ProMED “One Health” Initiative Launched Targeting Physicians, Veterinarians and other public health workers in Anglophone Africa – June 30, 2009   I am pleased to announce this new enterprise targeting physicians and veterinarians in Anglophone Africa, complementing ProMED-FRA which does the same for francophone Africa.  These are not duplicates from the English ProMED lists, but have a specific regional focus.   ProMED-EAFR is collaboration between ProMED and the East Africa Integrated Disease Surveillance Network (EAIDSNet), which is a joint effort of the Ministries of Health of Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda as well as national health research and academic institutions. The objective of this initiative between the International Society for Infectious Disease (ISID) and EAIDSNet is to facilitate access to outbreak information on the part of physicians, veterinarians and other public health workers throughout English-speaking Africa. Subscription to ProMED-EAFR is free of charge.
