Hi all,

I'm interested if there are 'networks' of centers for eHealth and
Telemedicine in your region.

In Southeast Asia, we are trying to create this network with the intent of
sharing best practice and lessons learned. We plan to meet once a year. Last
week, we attempted to get someone from Yogyakarta give a lecture over skype
to Manila (on eHealth).

I was thinking that a regional approach would be more 'cozy' but that there
should also be an inter-region network (under ISFTeH perhaps?).

There is also the IDRC-led PANACeA which is an eHealth network in Asia
Pacific. The ASEAN network will definitely plug into the larger PANACeA...

Would appreciate your inputs..
