31 July, 2022

Recently, at the HIFA Spanish Forum, we received a thanking and farewell message from Alberto Fernandez Ajuria, a former HIFA Spanish coordinator and moderator of the Forum for the Spanish speaking community.

Here there is a translation of his message received on July 28, 2022.


Dear members of the HIFA-es forum,

As you have recently observed, the moderation of this forum is being carried out by Jackeline Alger, whom we thank for the continuity in this function and in the maintenance of the forum, once the Andalusian School of

Public Health (EASP) ceases in them.

Since the beginning of the HIFA-es forum, as a specific forum in Spanish of have been exciting years and also years overwhelmed by the COVID pandemic. The pandemic has affected the development initially planned, but during it, HIFA-es members have kept the activity of this Spanish-speaking community connected and sharing the different initiatives in which they have participated.

It has been a great privilege to moderate and coordinate this forum during this period, and I want to thank you for your collaboration, and also for your understanding if I have made any mistakes or delays in anything. I am convinced that, under the new moderation and management of the Forum, it will grow in membership and will be enriched in content, in opportunities to share resources and to establish personal and professional contacts.

Thanks a lot.
