Best wishes, Neil
A BIG thank you to all members of CHIFA and HIFA as the year draws to a close. I get a great deal of inspiration and assistance from being in this network, and, this year, members have helped us a great deal - with developing our posters, translating our content and developing new sets of health messages for children to learn and share. Having this network to lean on and getting the feedback that we do from so many, gives me confidence that we are doing something important and useful.
