As you know, at the last meeting in Harare, there was a strong recommendation that Technet should have a more formal structure, or at least a strategic framework. The resources that Technet members can offer the global immunization effort are even more critical as the activities of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), become focused at country level. We would like your input on how best to move forward. If Technet is important to you, please take some time to answer to complete the questionnaire at the following web address: http://www-nt.who.int/vaccines/technet/index.cfm Thank you for your participation. With best regards. Yours sincerely, Dr Julie Milstien Acting Coordinator Access to Technologies Vaccines and Biologicals ____________________________________*______________________________________ 2.
