Geneva Seminar: Working for the United Nations in Health team has received dozens of applications from around the globe and the acceptance letters will be going out this coming week. The formal letter could serve in applying for scholarships, visa and other formalities.
The Seminar HAS NOT any scholarship program or other financial support available. This is an NGO initiative.
The deadline for registration is soon arriving and for convenience I added the registration form and leaflet informing about this event herewith
It is so wonderful to see that the focus of the 2012 Geneva Seminar appeals to so many.

Dear Inon Schenker,

This is the kind of seminar I need to move my carrer forward but rather unfortunately my present contract with an agency will not allow me to be in Geneva in May 2012.

I hope the interest shown by colleaques making enquiries and the nimber of participants shouldl motivate the organizers to consider organizing another one this year or next year for people who will miss this one.

On the other hand, is it possible to put up summary materials on the net for us to access?

Thank you.

Dear Dr. Tang,

Thank you for organizing the Geneva Seminar on Working for the UN in Health
held last May 2012.

I am sure many more people, including myself could have attended but had
one or two challenges so could not make it.

Please is there a possibility to put the summary of the deliberations in a
pdf document to enable us access to help us in one way or the other? I am
sure this will benefit a lot of people.

Thank you.

Dear all,
Indeed putting a summary of the deliberations will benefit us all so that
we all move at the same pace
