Dear Joseph and all,
Thanks for your message and suggestion to leave out "We want to welcome hundreds of new members for this vital exchange of experience and expertise".
To clarify, my intention here was not to increase our membership (although this would be welcome), but to engage new members to maximise our collective experience and expertise for the upcoming discussion. We especially want to reach out to public health professionals and frontline health professionals who may not yet have heard of HIFA, but who are deeply engaged in the challenges of maintaining essential health services during the pandemic.
Best wishes, Neil
