October 2013 was a really exciting month in the INA-RESPOND network calendar. It was the month when we officially launched the first edition of the INA-RESPOND Newsletter. The launch of the INA-RESPOND Newsletter is symbolic of how the INA-RESPOND network, which consists of major hospitals and universities in big cities across Indonesia, demonstrates its growing interest and commitment to improving the health of the people of Indonesia. The network aims to do this by actively encouraging and supporting activities and studies, and by giving the network’s members and other potential hospitals/universities greater opportunities to learn about and participate in the research.
Through this newsletter, we are encouraging people to spread the word about the INA-RESPOND network and about the studies that the network has been conducting so far as well as to promote future studies by the network. We look forward to having great and wonderful communication with all members of the network research teams; for both the people of this country and everyone in this community.
