I have included the following links at the bottom of the page, including a new category (NGOs):
–Technology, Health, and Development is a blog that hopes to “bring together public health advocates, teachers, engineers, computer scientists and business/technology experts who may not normally interact” to tackle global health problems. Their posts are interesting and innovative, their announcements timely. I agree that global health problems “cannot be solved by any one idea or set of experts, and that a group effort is essential.”
–Brown for Global Health is another blog dedicated to global health. It’s worth a look; they address important issues, and generate discussion.
–The American Society for Tropical Medicine and Hygiene is a good place to start for clinicians interested in clinical tropical medicine. There is info about conferences, their journal, and the ASTMH Certification Program.
–World Health Organization. News, Health Topics, Publications, etc.
–Esperanca is an NGO that sends surgical teams to Central America and implements public health programs in various countries.
