Back in March, CARE launched a new blog focused on avian flu: What's new in the world of avian flu?. It's geared primarily toward sharing information among CARE's network of country-level offices, but will be of interest to anyone trying to follow developments on the ground in the countries where avian influenza is currently circulating. Fitting with the organization's mission, there's a strong emphasis on the developing world.
The blog's description reads:
The purpose of the CARE Avian Flu Blog is to create a simple site where CARE staff can stay updated on the latest and most important AI news. Since we have access to information and are constantly looking over AI related news and materials, it helps us narrow down the best information and provide an easy place for CARE staff to stay updated with AI information that is particular to their needs.
The types of news and information that are posted include:
1. New outbreaks in poultry or human cases
2. News stories related to pandemic preparedness
3. New tools and materials, especially for community level work or pandemic preparedness
4. Programs and ideas being implemented by CARE staff
5. Upcoming conferences, events, trainings
I've added it to the list of "Links" on the side. (And In the process, I've realized headings like "Links" and "News Sources" are far too vague to be helpful, so I hope to reorganize these lists soon.)
