Lymphatic Filariasis Elimination:

RPRG Newsletter of the Americas

The newsletter for Lymphatic Filariasis Elimination: Regional Program Review Group (RPRG) of the Americas and our partners is based on the concept of improved communications among the national and municipal program managers and their partners, as well as a proposed plan for improved communication. The proposal was made in a presentation to the Region's six program managers and partners at the Third Regional Program Managers Meeting in Septermber 2002, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. In keeping with the original proposal, the objective of this newsletter is to share technical, operational and policy issues for the Americas, and share key information for planning and decision-making while minimizing the duplication of information from those websites devoted to lymphatic filariasis.
