University students analysis of HIFA discussion

4 April, 2020

Dear HIFA colleagues,

I have asked university students to join the HIFA forum and best utilize the esteemed forum of scholars for the knowledge/evidence on current health and wellbeing themes. It is a student-led project (SDG-3) for their internal assessment. Students follow and analyze the contents shared in this platform from April 6 to 13 (8 days) and write their reflection (an essay) critically reviewing the facts shared on current trending discussion in coronavirus (COVID-19).

I hope you will register the students in this forum in due process (earlier the possible). [*see note below]

[*Note from HIFA moderator (Neil PW): Thank you Sudarshan, this is wonderful. I see your students have signed up and will welcome them today. We now have students in two countries (Croatia and Nepal) who are analysing HIFA discussions! Please do let us know how this goes. Other lecturers may like to consider the same in their university.
